Less than a month into 2019, the teachers of Los Angeles proved that last year’s wave of collective action isn’t quieting down. After taking to the streets in a strike that has captured the country’s imagination, members of United Teachers Los Angeles are returned to classrooms after overwhelmingly approving a paradigm-shifting contract that delivers on key demands.
Women’s March Los Angeles Foundation is a women-led non-profit 501(c)(3) organization created in 2016 by the producers of the historic Women’s March LA, whose mission is to bring attention to the struggles of marginalized communities and all attacks on human rights.
More than 30,000 LAUSD teachers are now on strike, fighting for the schools our students deserve. AFM Local 47 stands in solidarity with our dedicated sisters and brothers of United Teachers Los Angeles and encourage you to join us on the picket lines.
