Which 2017 Inauguartion Protest Are You Attending?

 

Donald Trump and his nominee for Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, have proven themselves to be enemies of the public schools. Neither Trump nor DeVos went to or sent their children to public schools. Their policies are meant to benefit the 1{ad240bdc933e8291c170e386d0b01f82788bc4a8ea0d319192e75b222859f323} and increase profits for their friends — not work to give our children, particularly Black and Brown children, the education they deserve and need.

On Thursday, January 19th, the day before inauguration day, communities all across the United States will come together for a national day of resistance to Trump’s education policies. Join the Our City Our Schools coalition to protect our students, our schools and our communities from Donald Trump in Philadelphia — RSVP here!

We will come together to launch our resistance to Trump’s education plans over the next four years. We demand: local control of our schools and the abolishment of the School Reform Commission, corporations like Wells Fargo pay their fair share for education and our schools become sanctuary spaces against deportations and racism.

Join us on Thursday, January 19th for two actions:

3:30 PM: Fund Schools Not Wall Street at City Hall (15th and Market) to demand Wells Fargo pay their fair share back to the Philadelphia Schools: RSVP here!

4:00 PM: Education Not Deportations at Philadelphia School District (440 N Broad) to demand Philadelphia schools become sanctuary spaces against deportations, racism and bullying.

Both actions will end together at 440 N Broad St: RSVP here! And share your friends on this Facebook event as well!

We know that getting our kids the education they deserve will take consistent organizing and action. Our schools need to be locally controlled, to be funded, to be safe against racist attacks. Join us on Thursday, January 19th to begin our resistance to Trump’s education agenda.

See you there,

Arielle Klagsbrun on behalf of Our City Our Schools

Women’s March on Philadelphia – Vision and Intent

On Saturday, January 21, 2017, Philadelphia will unite with Washington, D.C. and over 150 cities around the world for the historic Women’s March. We stand together in the birthplace of our nation, united with our partners, friends and children for the protection of our civil liberties, civil rights, and equality. Regardless of race, gender, age, ethnicity, religious affiliation, political party, immigration status, sexual identity or orientation, we come together in Philadelphia to represent the fabric of America, to voice our concerns, and to peaceably express our grievances:

  1. As female citizens, we are often marginalized into antiquated roles that do not reflect our intersectionality or our diverse natures. To define the role of a woman or girl in today’s society requires far more than a mere 140-character limit. We strive to bridge the divide within womankind, and fight for women’s equality for all women.
  2. We must unify to shed light on the need for long overdue awareness of gender equality and basic human rights:
    a) Legal protections ensuring sovereignty for all women over their bodies and health choices must be implemented.
    b) Equal pay cannot be only lip service, but clear, comprehensive state and federal law.
    c) Religious freedom, one of the cornerstones of our country’s founding principles, must not be mutated into sanctioned discrimination, but rather upheld to enable all Americans the freedom to practice and discuss their beliefs in whatever method they choose.
    d) Family leave for parents must become reality for all to thrive in their careers, and meaningfully impact today’s society and future generations.

The Women’s March on Philadelphia recognizes the vibrancy and diversity of our communities as our country’s most important strengths. We refuse to normalize targeted discrimination disguised as policy, and invite you to join us in taking the next steps to demand a real and lasting change.

    You can ride with us. I don’t know if we will be able to do the 7 pm event. We will likely be leaving around that time in less there is madness on the streets. I plan on begin in Philly the next day for any the marches and protest that are happening there.
    We will be doing the same thing as last time. However we will probably leave earlier to bet the people who are also leaving early. I’m not 100{ad240bdc933e8291c170e386d0b01f82788bc4a8ea0d319192e75b222859f323} sure, but i expect we will be leaving around 2:30 in the morning.

                how is that the same as protesting the election? Clintons largest donors were the big banks she is the president of the bankers . People wouldn’t be protesting if she won.

    @disabcowboy…. I think you are blending the actual Trump protester number with the number of other causes that are using this event as the outlet to have their voice heard. Sure there are people who are directly protesting trump, but their are more people protesting for individual causes.

      those individual causes are being protested because our president elect threatens their livelihood. why do people protest? for the most part because they were affected and feel there is injustice. Everyone traveling to D.C. the weekend of the 20th-22nd is there to either support or protest the racist president elect. that is the major roads headed there!!

    @aliciadorsey2: i think people have found a way to link the their causes with Trump in some of these cases. It is pretty much like ‘ your the guy in charge now hear us out.’ There are some protest that are directly related to Trump. Saying that all or most of the of the protest happening this weekend is related to him shines a little to much light on him. Which is something that he loves.
    How you you think he got that tan? From stealing all the light!?

    It is possible that all the protesters have found a way to link their causes to Donald Trump. I can only wait and see. I share what I saw when I return. I will also be in Philly the next day to catch movements that are happening up here.
    I hope everything is okay. If you can come last minute let me know and I will try to make it happen!
