Car Caravan to Madison to Demand Health Be Placed Over Profits

Wisconsinites want safe, healthy, and equitable schools and communities! Wisconsin education workers will lead a car caravan to the Capitol to demand Wisconsin State Health Secretary Palm and other elected leaders and government officials do their job! Join the car caravan starting in Kenosha and ending in Madison to demand…

• No in-person schooling until scientific and public-health data supports it
• Police-free schools
• All schools must be supported to function as community schools with adequate numbers of counselors and nurses
• Safe conditions including lower class sizes, PPE, cleaning, testing, and other key protocols
• Equitable access to online learning
• Support for our communities and families, including a moratorium on evictions/foreclosures, direct cash assistance to those unable to work, and other critical social needs
• Moratorium on new charter or voucher programs
• Massive infusion of federal money to support the reopening funded by taxing the billionaires and Wall Street

The car caravan will start in Kenosha at 9:30am and move to Racine by 10:30am, Milwaukee at 11:30am and Madison by 1pm.

Turn your car into a moving billboard with messages that support the demands above. Remember this is a socially distanced event and we want participants to ride alone and not with others.

This action is being hosted by Kenosha Education Association, Leaders Igniting Transformation, Madison Teachers Incorporated, Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association, Rea-Reaa Unity, Voces de la Frontera, Youth Empowered in the Struggle (YES).

All educators, parents and communities MUST contact their Senators https://educationvotes.nea.org/issue/covid-19/ to demand the resources we need to keep students, staff, families and communities safe. Congress has a national responsibility to act. We support affiliates building coalitions and local support to ensure safe, equitable school re-openings. https://www.demandsafeschools.org We want every student back in school, but only when it’s safe!

Kewaunee, August 1, 2020: Protest for Racial Justice + BLM

Protest for Racial Justice + BLM

Protest on the side of HWY 42 near Tug Ludington in Kewaunee, WI from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Social distancing rules will be applied and we ask that masks are worn. Come anytime you can. Water, sunscreen, hand sanitizer, and extra signs will be provided. Resources will be made available as the purpose of the protest is to inform and educate.

We are still running a book exchange to celebrate black authors and storytellers, so bring a book if you can + grab a book to expand and diversify your reading list! We are taking donations as well to buy more books for donation to local schools.

Continue to keep this momentum alive. We are living in one of the greatest civil rights movement of human history, and although change is being made already, there is more work to do. Amplify Black voices whenever you can, have conversations with friends and family, and continue to be an ally. This generation will not burn out.
