    ACTION: Fund our Schools Banner Drop

    Help us show Oregon that educators are demanding fully funded schools, and we will not give up until we get the school funding our students need and deserve.

    Wednesday, March 13th, 4-6 pm, at highway overpasses across Portland.

    The March for our Students in Salem on February 18th was a wild success, we had about 5,000 people turn out to raise our voices in Salem. We got a lot of attention but we are still turning up the pressure. The public needs to know that we are seeing unprecedented challenges in our schools and we are doing unprecedented things to put pressure on our elected leaders and decision makers to fund our future and fund our schools. 

    Here is what's next-- we have organized a banner drop as a coordinated action across all of Oregon on Wednesday, March 13th after school. We will be displaying messages on major overpasses above rush-hour traffic across the state of Oregon. The overpasses we have selected in Portland have lots of commuter traffic to see our messages, and sidewalks to help keep folks safe. 

    We need your help, we need your voice, we need your engagement. There will be a captain there when you arrive to help. Please share with colleagues and friends and have them sign up to join you as well! Bring your sign from the march, bring noisemakers, and be sure to WEAR RED for ED.
