REGISTER FOR THE CONFERENCE HERE

We, the people, have the democratic power to beat back these attacks and ensure that our public institutions effectively serve the public. But to do so, members of all regions and sectors — adult-ed, students, workers, teachers, activists, unions, and community organizations — must unite and take action on October 7th, and contribute our voices and thoughts to the October 30-31st conference at San Francisco State University to defend public education.

The purpose of the October 30-31st conference is to democratically propose demands, devise an action plan, and create a structure capable of defending public education and public services for the benefit of all.

We invite all supporters of education across the nation to attend and participate in the October 7th day of action and the October 30-31st conference.
