SAVE the DATE: 3RD ANNUAL WOMENS' MARCH SANTA CRUZ 1/19/19

Gathering at Cathcart Street (exact time and spot to be announced.) We will have our GSCFT Banner and signs. Bring signs! Bring noisemakers!

We ask all Educators and Allies to dress in Red For Ed! to show the need for more funding for our public schools. K12 schools have historically been staffed by a majority of women, and always have been underpaid. It’s time for the State of California to change this paradigm. More details to follow.
