WHY

Join our youth-led action for our education, and for our futures.

Our education system here in California has been left in the dust for far too long. Teachers and students are bearing the brunt of the consequences. With the 5th largest economy in the World but one of the worst states in the U.S for per pupil spending - we need to stop spending more on prisoners than we do on students. Climate Justice and education are the two foremost issues affecting the next generation, and it’s time we took more action to address the latter. With teachers whom are barely floating above the poverty line, with undergrads whom are being crushed under the weight of their student debts, and with highschool students being dumped with millions and millions in budget cuts, education reform is now, more than ever, a necessity. And that’s why we are coming out to March for Education on November 9th.

The November 9th March for Education is completely student-led, student-run, and student organized. Students are finally getting involved and taking back their education: let’s go out and support them. Students want a brighter future, and a better, more equal and fair education system. Education is important, and youth voices in education are even more important.

We’ve already marched for science, for gun violence, for gender equality, and for climate: Let’s finally march for Education.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF IT RAINS?

The same thing that will happen if it doesn't rain, the rally and march will still go on. Education is our future, and we are fighting for it.

WHO IS INVITED?

Everyone who believes in a positive and just future, and who believes that our education system needs fundamental reform; California’s education system needs to start putting students and teachers first, and that should begin now. If you believe in a bright future for our children, come out and show your support on November 9th.
