People's March for Public Education & Social Justice
We Need Your Help!
We are raising money to bring parents and youth from New Jersey (Newark/Camden), Philadelphia, Chicago, Massachusetts, and Detroit to event. We need your help to get them there! Your donation will help sponsor buses, housing, and conference registration for the families most impacted by the attack on public education and community. You can help be making a tax-deductible donation to Save Our Schools March or through our GoFundMe campaign. Help us raise $5000 by July 4th!
Transportation and parking in the DC area can be difficult to say the least. We encourage the use of public transportation for the rally and the conference. If you require assistance with accessibility, contact us so we can help.
