In the face of stagnating wages and economic distress, two recent court decisions driven by anti-worker extremists threaten to undermine workers’ ability to unite for good jobs. The Vergara v. California and Harris v. Quinn decisions are part of a broader attack on working people and low-income communities and schools that is funded by right-wing billionaires such as the Koch brothers and the Walton family.

Over 500 parents, students  and educators rallied in front of the U.S. Supreme Court on May 13th, the 60th anniversary of the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision. The rally kicked off a National Week of Action organized by the Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools, which represents over 7 million parents, teachers and students nationwide who are fighting for equal opportunity and educational justice. The Alliance was there to honor Brown’s 60th anniversary and to renew the call for equity and opportunity in our nation’s public schools.
