Union educators organizing with the Educators Climate Action Network are planning to mobilize their coworkers and with youth movements for action during the week leading up to Earth Day 2023 (April 17th – 22nd). They are calling on educator union locals to pass their own version of this resolution committing to join the week of action. Their demands of school districts and elected officials include modern, healthy, fully-resourced green schools; divestment of pension funds from fossil fuels coupled with reinvestment in the green, sustainable economy; and a commitment to truth and teaching climate justice across curriculum. Get educators involved by signing up here or passing around digital flyers (version 1 and/or version 2). An easy-to-use toolkit to help educators participate however they can will be made available soon.
