Education Justice March & Rally

Wed, 10/07/2015 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm
Hooper Renwick School
56 Neal Blvd
Lawrenceville, GA
United States

It’s time for the 3rd Annual Gwinnett SToPP/Dignity in Schools Campaign March and Rally. This year the event will take place at the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse at downtown Lawrenceville’s town square. Our partner for the event is Interfaith Children’s Movement.

The march begins at Hooper Renwick School, former home and symbol for a segregated education as the only public school in the county that black students could attend until 1964 and later, for students with disabilities. The march winds through downtown Lawrenceville and ends at the town square. Meet at the school (Scenic Hwy/GA-124 & Neal Blvd, Lawrenceville, GA) at 5pm to march for education justice for our kids.

Atlanta March and Rally Against School Pushout - October 4

“The fact that our schools place thousands of kindergartners each year in out-of-school suspension is reason alone for comprehensive school discipline reform,” said Pamela Perkins Carn of Interfaith Children’s Movement. “At five years old, we're telling children that school is not for you--you don't belong here. It's counter-intuitive to building a quality education system because, with each suspension, children are much less likely to graduate high school. At ICM, we understand that every child is a learner. Every child deserves the best education we can possibly give.”

This year the Georgia Partners of the Dignity in Schools Campaign will host the 2nd Annual March and Rally Against School Pushout at the Casey University Avenue Site in the Pittsburgh community of Atlanta as part of the National Week of Action.

It's Time for "Community Power!" 

When: Friday, July 5th

Poster: Anticuts Atlanta #1

Re-posted from a poster seen around the Little 5 Points neighborhood in Atlanta, GA:

What the Fuck Was That?!

On the night of November 14th, roughly 40 people flooded Moreland Avenue with boomboxes and drums behind a banner reading "AGAINST AUSTERITY."

The roving mob funneled through the shopping district chanting "A-ANTI-ANTICAPITALISTA!" over filthy dubstep before convering on the Little 5 Points Plaza. Despite the overwhelming presence of police and Department of Homeland Security, there were no arrests.

But Why?

Atlanta: a Report-Back from October 22nd March

291 At 4pm, on October 22nd, roughly 50 people congregated in Woodruff Park as a part of the annual day against “police brutality and the criminalization of a generation.” The gathering was diverse and there were a handful of faces covered in scarves and masks throughout the crowd.

For about an hour, speakers from the October 22nd Coalition gave speeches while others played drums or posed for pictures in front of the huge “Fuck the Police” banner. Around 5pm, the crowd began marching toward the Atlanta City Detention Center. Although the organizers initially attempted to keep the crowd on the sidewalk, several hooded ones, drummers and a few folks holding a red flag walked in the street. The rest of the crowd joined and flooded all four lanes of traffic just as the event organizers irrelevantly gave their approval.

Stand With Public Education!

People all over Georgia are gathering to celebrate the victories of the Chicago Teacher's strike and apply the lessons learned to our own struggles for public education for all here in our state. Through Race to the Top, our K-12 teachers are no longer educators, they are average test scores, micromanaged to ensure to actual learning occurs in the classroom. Charters are privatizing public education and ensuring a two-tier system for our children, one with resources, the other with privation. The massive in
crease in student fees, teacher speed-ups and layoff at the university level only spread this agenda beyond K-12. And the ban on undocumented students in Georgia's top schools ensures the re-segregation of our schools.
Will we stand for it? NO!
What do we do? Follow the lead of the Chicago teachers who fought for their communities, their neighborhood schools, and won.
