30,000 Chicago Teachers on Strike!

Brothers and Sisters-

30,000 teachers in the 3rd largest school system in the nation are ON STRIKE!  They are fighting for the schools our children deserve! 

Here’s how can you help:

1.) Call CPS and the Mayor Tell them you support the teachers’ demands and that you know this fight is about more than money. It’s about bringing smaller classes, a better–not just longer— day, and more services to our schools. The teachers are fighting for things that really matter in the classroom. Together we can win the schools our children deserve.

Call CPS CEO J.C. Brizard at 773-553-1500            

Call Mayor Emanuel at 312-744-3300

2.) Put money down for food to be sent to strike headquarters: pay for a pizza from Primo’s Pizza! Pizza’s will be sent to strike HQ! Call Gus or Daisy at Primo’s Pizza at (312) 243-1052. Primo’s is at 816 W Van Buren Street, Chicago. Open 11 am to 9 pm Monday through Friday, but try not to call during lunch rush 11:45 to 1:15.

3.) Volunteer at strike headquarters in the mornings, anytime between 6 AM to 11 AM at Teamster City at 300 S. Ashland.

4.) Join the daily rally at 3 PM at Chicago Public Schools HQ at 125 S. Clark.

5.) Take a picture with a sign stating “I support Chicago’s Teachers ” and post it to Facebook!
