Our students have made their voices heard, and it is our turn to respond. It’s time for us to show them that we are listening and are standing in solidarity with them against police brutality and the murder of black people. We must show our students that they are not alone in this fight for racial justice, but rather that they have a whole community—including their teachers and school staff—who are fighting for justice with them.
All NJ teachers, school staff, students, parents, and all community members, please join us for our Teachers for Black Lives Rally and March! Please consider wearing your SOMEA t shirt.
Date: Mon, June 15
Start: Marshall Elementary
End: CHS back gym parking lot by steps
