Come join thousands of public education staff, teachers, families and stakeholders in our education system as we Take On Tallahassee to fight for a better future for Florida’s students.
The rally will be held on Monday, January 13th, the day before Florida’s 2020 legislative session begins. We’re standing up for the funding that our schools and students deserve, fair pay for all of our state’s education staff, an end to the over-testing of our students and for more local control of our school districts.
The stakes couldn’t be higher for Florida’s education system and together we will make our voices heard. The rally will begin at 1:30 at the Florida Capitol and will feature speakers from across Florida and the nation, all standing up for our students.
the first committee weeks, through sine die, the end of every Legislative
Session, Working Families Lobby Corps activists represent Florida’s working
people at the Capitol. Those same activists leave the Capitol empowered to take
the fight home, spreading the word about how “politics as usual” really works
in Tallahassee, and galvanizing their Sisters and Brothers to join the fight.
year, the union members and citizen activists of the Working Families Lobby
Corps will be in Tallahassee once again – every day – to make sure ALL working
people in the state are represented fairly. We will continue to be there every
day to speak out in favor of workers and WILL be heard.
