Rally to Support Public Education
- June 1, 2000
Dear Friend of Public Education,
I am writing to invite you to join parents, community members, union members,
teachers, and other friends of public education at a rally and press
conference on Thursday, June 8 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. outside Temple's Liacouras
Center (the old Apollo) at Broad & Cecil B. Moore Streets.
The rally is co-sponsored by the Pennsylvania Campaign for Public Education,
the Alliance Organizing Project, Jobs with Justice, and many more partners.
The PFT is in support of the event and will be making a public statement
during the rally.
We are inviting you to:
1. Bring your friends, neighbors, co-workers, and family. You can pick up
extra copies of the flyer from the AOP office or they can be delivered to you
2. Register your group to speak at the rally.
3. Bring signs and posters with you in support of public education. Our
message is to say no to state takeover, yes to smaller class size, yes to
higher teacher salaries, and yes to more equitable public education funding.
To receive copies of the flyer or to register your group to speak at the
rally, please contact me at (215) 625-9916.
On behalf of all of the members of the Pennsylvania Campaign for Public
Education, we look forward to seeing you on the 8th and thank you for your
dedication to the children of Philadelphia!
