Join the May 4 National Walk-Ins!

AROS is proud to announce that dozens of cities are gearing up for a demonstration of support for their public schools and the fight for the Schools All Our Children Deserve. On May 4, parents, students and educators will gather outside of their schools before the bell to hold a rally and march. Then they will walk into their schools together in a show of solidarity.
 
This is the second national walk-in event organized by the Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools - and the movement is growing! Earlier this year, 33 cities participated in the first national walk-in on February 17. (You can find a recap of that event with pictures and videos here.)

For May 4, we already have 75 cities and counties signed on, with more joining every day! As public schools are increasingly threatened by a view of education that supports privatization, zero-tolerance discipline policies, less funding, and high-stakes standardized tests, AROS is fighting back with a broad vision of American public education that prioritizes racial justice, equity and well-resourced, world-class, public community schools. 
 
Join us on May 4! We have a toolkit of walk-in resources available here. And you can check out the growing list of participating cities below.
Let us know you are joining the movement by emailing our campaign coordinator, Madeline Talbott (mtalbott321@yahoo.com).
