May 16: A Day of Advocacy for Public Education

May 16: A Day of Advocacy for Public Education

On May 16, educators from across North Carolina will gather in downtown Raleigh for a Day of Advocacy, including a 10am March and a 3:30pm Rally.  Over 10,000 people are expected to attend this historic event. AFAR supports the teachers and public school advocates, and we encourage families to wear #RedforEd and attend the march or the rally if possible. The ultimate goal is to elect more pro-public education leaders in North Carolina to return our state back to a beacon for public schools.  For more information, please refer to https://may16.org/
