What an incredible week of action! Over 400 San Francisco teachers and paras joined over 100,000 people on Saturday during the San Francisco Women’s March. We are proud to have marched with so many incredible people, standing up for our students, our families, and our communities! Whether it was your first march, or you’ve spent a lifetime in the streets and on the picket line, the marches across the nation helped to galvanize millions of people to fight back against hatred, bigotry, and sexism.

The Women’s March followed a very successful AROS Day of Action on Thursday, during which hundreds of educators in 32 SFUSD schools pledged before the school day to protect and defend our students and our schools, and a loud and boisterous day of action on Friday during which countless more UESF members joined another soggy day and evening of protest.

As wonderful as the turnout and energy was for the actions last week, we know that to truly bring the change we need, we’ve got to organize. With plans in place to establish an emergency response network and to defend our sanctuary city, and our contract campaign just around the corner, there is indeed much work to do.
