WHEN: This Fri, Nov 30th 4-6

WHY. . . .
                 
The 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. . .leadership. 
MORE (Movement of Rank and FIle Educators) believes in a member driven, social justice, social movement oriented union.
 We 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 evaluations to us, and let us decide what was acceptable. 
 A 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. 
Meet some of the teachers who will be running on the MORE slate in the union wide elections this spring and build solidarity with your fellow educators.
