815 E Locust, Milwaukee, 4-6 P.M.
We love working in Milwaukee Public Schools, but know our days are also challenging and stressful. That’s why Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association (MTEA) welcomes all MPS educators and education workers to the Riverwest Public House Cooperative for “Fight Back Friday.” This new event will be held on the last Friday of every month from 4pm to 6pm, and will offer local educators and education workers a space to connect, rejuvenate, and advocate for our students and profession.
Every month MTEA will feature a different activity or speaker to keep each Friday’s festivities fresh. Come and join others fighting to make our public schools the best possible place for our students.
We’re super excited MPS art teacher and MTEA member John Fleissner has agreed to screen print one of his many great pro-public education images on items people bring (posters, t-shirts, bags, etc) for our inaugural event! MTEA Substitute Teacher President, Alex Brower will also be present to talk about MPS substitutes’ campaign to win health insurance.
Bring an item to be screen printed, enjoy a beverage (Public House will offer a drink special), catch up on union and public education advocacy, and meet other awesome MPS folks! This event is free and open to the public.
