This is a chance to learn about MORE, meet other union members who are down for a different UFT and to enjoy some cheap happy hour drinks and good conversation.

The event is scheduled from 5-8. We will start with a brief intro to MORE.
Followed by some hands on organizing practice!

How DO you talk to your colleagues about these important issues? What do you say when they ask tough questions? What can you ask them to do to be involved?

The UFT has not had to do any actual organizing for decades. If we want to build a strong, democratic union where members are educated and ready to take action, we need to organize and have many conversations with our co-workers. If we want a mobilized base that can fight collectively for better working and learning conditions . .

WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO TALK TO EACH OTHER?

We will close by making sure that everyone knows how to get and stay involved in the ongoing work of MORE and we'll have plenty of time to schmooze and enjoy a beverage.

Hope to see you! Feel free to bring friends!

ASK MORE FROM YOUR UNION!
