Rally for Public Education

Saturday, February 11, 2012
11AM – 12PM
Schenley Plaza
(tented area between the Oakland Carnegie Library and Hillman Library)

Organized by public school parents, students, teachers and concerned citizens in Pittsburgh and the surrounding region. This rally is a really important way to show our positive support for public schools and to get media attention focused on the devastating budget cuts. It will be short (one hour), fun, and we will have postcards and a large banner to sign that will be going with the teens rallying in Harrisburg a few days later.

Here is what you can do to help:

  • Show up!
  • RSVP on our Facebook page or use the form below.
  • Spread the word to your friends, colleagues, and personal networks (this is the single most effective thing you can do). When sending email, attach the color version of the Rally Flyer.
  • Spread the word to others: sign up on our planning document to contact organizations and others you might know to make this a truly coordinated response.
  • Distribute copies of the Rally flyer to school groups, offices, or hang up around town. (If you can only print or copy in black and white, please use this grayscale version of the Rally flyer).
  • Make home-made signs or banners to bring to the Rally: focus on the state cuts and the impact on our schools.
  • To help make additional visuals for the Rally, please come to a sign party on Thursday, Feb. 9th at 7PM at Kathy Newman’s house (knewman4_at_gmail.com).
