    10/14 Press Conference

    We Can’t Wait

     

    Fund Our Public Schools!

    October 14th Press Conference

    On October 14th: parents, teachers, community organizations and state lawmakers from Rochester will be speaking out for the hundreds of millions of dollars our schools have been short-changed these past few years. Back in 2007 the Campaign for Fiscal Equity forced New York State to address the huge inequities in school funding that total billions of dollars throughout the state. Just as the money began to trickle in the great recession took hold. With a healing economy and flush state coffers, the time for excuses is over. 

    Rochester and Monroe County deserve better. Metro Justice and the Alliance for Quality Education are calling on all state lawmakers to pledge their commitment to equitable school funding. Metro Justice is holding a press conference on October 14th at 11 AM, at the Sully Public Library. Speakers will include: State Senator Ted O'Brien, Assemblyman Harry Bronson, James Bearden Education Committee Co-Chair at Metro Justice, Jennifer Banister Development & Collaborations Manager at Teen Empowerment, and several other concerned parents, teachers and community members.

    Where: 530 Webster Avenue, Children's Room (Sully Public Library)

    When: Tuesday, October 14th at 4 PM

    In this year's State Senate elections, some major issues hang in the balance. Will New York State get a real raise in the minimum wage? Will the state properly and equitably fund our public schools? And whose voices will really be represented in Albany?

    Metro Justice is committed to ensuring that those most directly impacted communities have their voices heard in all major issues that impact them. Increasing voter turn-out is an important way to help build the power of marginalized communities. Even more important, is engaging these communities in our long-term organizing efforts.   

    Voter engagement is a great opportunity to recruit new members and promote important issues, like raising the minimum wage and increasing school funding for struggling schools. If you care about these issues and want to recruit new progressive voters, please join us at the Sully Public Library, on Tuesday October 14th, at 4 PM.

    Volunteers will be canvassing neighborhoods between Culver and North Goodman between 4 PM and 7:30 PM, encouraging people to vote on the issues that matter most. Snacks and water will be provided.
