I. Organize, Organize, Organize!
Rank and file members in CORE and the CTU are organizing to ensure a safe and equitable reopening of school.
We know CPS is not prioritizing the health of our students, their families or staff in this haphazard plan they refuse to bargain or reconsider based on our concerns and recommendations.
Therefore, we are committed to taking action and expressing solidarity when and where any member is forced back to in person instruction against their will.
1. Support the CTU program and celebrate the courage of our first wave of members in pre-k and cluster programs slated to report on Monday, January 4th. We defend and encourage their right to assert a refusal to work in person and remain remote. Take a sick day or mental health day if you need one.

Please join us for this historical ride and support BLM demands to commemorate a history of struggle by Black Chicagoans for equity and equality in the face of massive resistance, racism, and violence. Now is the time to fight for police free schools, sustainable community schools, and a Chicago that prioritizes the needs of the Black, Latinx, indigenous, immigrant and low income communities we serve.
