DSA-LA’s Green New Deal for Public Schools LA campaign is hosting a 3-part public education town hall series (via Zoom) that gets at the core of the fight to defend and fully fund our public schools.
If we want to win a robust Green New Deal for LA public schools, we must ensure that our schools are well resourced, fully staffed, and protected from capitalist forces that seek to privatize and siphon funding from public schools that serve the majority BIPOC working class communities of LA County.
The final installation of our town hall series is “The Fight to Defend Public Education in LA”. In this town hall, we will discuss the current state of LA schools and how we organize and fight to defend and transform public education in LA
We will be joined by guest speakers Dr. Rocío Rivas, Eastside Public Education Advocate, and Hugo Soto-Martinez, DSA-LA endorsed candidate for City Council District 13
To prepare for this town hall we have a shortlist of readings for attendees to review in advance. We highly recommend reading the articles listed below as they will contribute to a collective discussion of the issues facing our public schools and how we can organize to build the schools students deserve.
Readings for the town hall:
We look forward to your participation in this town hall conversation, and to working together to build stronger public schools!
