Check Out Randi Weingarten’s Latest Column in the Huffington Post

This morning, AFT president Randi Weingarten’s monthly New York Times/Huffington Post column will focus on the importance of collective voice, drawing from her keynote address at AFT TEACH. She writes,

“Two-thousand educators descended on Washington, D.C., to learn from experts and one another, and once there, the theme was resounding: The voices of educators matter. Especially in an era of toxic debates and top-down dictates, the voices of educators matter.

 

Where educators are raising and combining their voices, the seeds of positive change have emerged. Collective voice, exercised through the union, is power—the power to drive real change for our kids, families and communities. The stories we heard this week speak for themselves.”

Please share Randi’s words with your friends and family by promoting her article on social media. Below are some suggested Facebook posts and tweets for you to share–just click on the link or copy and paste them into Twitter.
