The United Teachers of LA (UTLA)—the union representing teachers and support service personnel throughout the massive Los Angeles Unified School District—has called for a Pre-Inauguration Citywide Action: We #SchoolTrump.On January 19th, the day before the presidential inauguration, we will stand up for our values as public school educators with actions at school sites citywide. We will show that educators are united with our students and our communities against Trump’s racially charged and anti-immigrant proposals and that we will continue to fight attempts to privatize public education.
Join tens of thousands of students, parents, educators, school staff, and community members in morning school site actions where we will hold picket lines and rallies with “shields” against the attacks that our students and our schools face and join a mass Tweetstorm against trump by sending personal messages written on an oversized letter from each school to him via Twitter with the tag #schooltrump.
An action like this, in a city as large as LA, and coordinated nationally, will get major news but most importantly it will demonstrate to our students that we support them and it will send a message to elected leaders that we are prepared to fight for our schools and our rights.
It is critical that we know which schools are participating
