Time to fight back
While this space is extremely educational, and while the creation of space for solidarity and collective learning is a prerequisite for movement building, union educators also aim to organize.
ECAN members are acting in their schools and communities, organizing for action such as: channeling members and building power inside the newly formed AFT and NEA national Climate Caucuses (sign-up to join!); getting interdisciplinary school curriculum and cross-cutting educational standards on climate justice passed into law at local and State levels; turning their schools into solar powered “resilience hubs” capable of providing power and cooling to community members during climate emergencies and related weather events; and bringing community members into their contract bargaining committees while incorporating community-informed green retrofitting of schools as major contract bargaining demands, beyond exclusively their own demands as workers. LNS will continue to support the development of this exciting formation. If you wish to be involved, please visit bit.ly/LNSECAN to sign up, as well as share the link and our flier with your fellow union educators!
