EDUCATE! ORGANIZE!! MOBILIZE!!!
These are the three pillars on which Ed Notes is founded – providing information on current ed issues, organizing activities around fighting for public education in NYC and beyond and exposing the motives behind the education deformers. We are part of a tiny band of resisters. Nothing will change unless YOU GET INVOLVED IN THE STRUGGLE!
UFT is the most powerful union in the city. And its OUR union! Yet most
members feel discouraged by our leadership's lack of. . .well. .
MORE (Movement of Rank and FIle Educators) believes in a member driven, social justice, social movement oriented union.
envision a union that educates, organizes and mobilizes the membership.
Remember the contract. . . imagine a UFT that spent the last 3 years
mobilizing the membership around a contract fight instead of. . . doing
nothing. Imagine a UFT that brought the discussion around OUR

MORE leadership would mean a union that defends the rights of teachers,
promotes membership engagement in all aspects of education and joins in
the fight against racism, poverty and the other social injustices that
we and our students face every day.
Come, have a drink, relax and meet other educators from District 15 and beyond who share this vision and want to know MORE about how they can get involved.
