Dear MFT & ESP Educators, 

Public education has never been in a tougher situation than this year. Educators in the MFT & ESP realized that we need to bring our voices to the political arena as another tool to really shape how we want the future of public education to look like. The policies that legislators make greatly impacts how districts and communities look like. 

The Worksite Unity Leaders came together and had put an amazing series of Conversation with our Legislators Virtual Lobby Day Events. We hope that you can all join us and share your lived experiences that educators and advocates with legislators.  

We know that when working class people come together, we can win! Our hope is that you will join us at the Lobby Day trainings before attending the conversation events. Thank you everyone and we look forward to seeing you at the events. 

You can find a link to attend the events on our Facebook page here.
