    Newsletter Mailing Party

    NEWSLETTER MAILING PARTY!

    Now more than ever it is important that we make sure the latest information about what is being done for Rochester by Metro Justice members is communicated and understood.

    We as members need to be able to share with the rest of the community the latest and most up to date information about the racial, social, and economic justice work that is being done by our fellow Metro Justice Members. This requires a highly informed member base and a number of important mediums of communication at hand. The Metro Justice newsletter remains to be one of those important mediums for many members. 

    With that in mind, we hope you will join us for another round of mailing this Tuesday, February 28th from 3-6 pm

    We will be meeting at the Metro Justice offices at 1115 East Main St., Door 7, Suite 207A. 

    WHAT: NEWSLETTER MAILING PARTY!

    WHERE: METRO JUSTICE (1115 EAST MAIN ST., ROCHESTER, NY 14609)

    People's March for Education Justice

     march2.jpg

     

    As we continue to defend the institution of public education from federal attacks by Donald Trump and Betsy DeVos, we march to defend that same institution here in New York. The public investment Governor Cuomo proposes in his education budget this year is woefully inadequate and falls way short of being equitable. It will negatively impact our most vulnerable students from early child care to higher education all across the state. Black, brown, immigrant, refugee , low-income, LGBTQIA, English Language Learners , homeless students and students with disabilities , are worthy of an investment that will meet their needs not deny them opportunities to be successful.

    •  We march to demand that Governor Cuomo finally fully funds the $4.3 billion owed to public statewide as a result of the Campaign for Fiscal Equity including the $170 million owed to Monroe County
    • We march to Raise the Age and stop the criminalization of our youth. We should be able to provide social workers and other nurturing and committed support staff in schools for struggling youth 
    • We march to end the state's over-reliance on high stakes testing 
    • We march to demand that NYS invests on the front end in childcare and pre-K and invests in truly making SUNY and CUNY free for all on the back end in order to ensure a successful transition to adulthood
    • We march because we need a Governor in NYS who is not afraid to make the super rich pay just 1% more by extending and expanding the millionaire's tax and closing corporate tax loopholes, which could bring billions to fund high quality education for all and so much more


    We only have until the end of March, when the budget is finalized to have an impact.

    If you were inspired by the historic Women’s March like we were, march with us to answer the call for 10 Actions in 100 Days.
