Betsy DeVos Counter Rally, 5pm, Fri 10/13

A lot of families have asked about today’s DeVos counter rally that many of our teachers and members plan to attend. It’s happening in Bellevue at 5pm today (Friday) outside the Hyatt Regency. Here is the latest Seattle Times coverage.

The Washington Education Association is organizing free buses to the event, leaving from Roosevelt, Chief Sealth, and Rainier Beach high schools. Sign up here if you’re hoping to take one of those. The buses will start leaving at 3:30 as they fill up. (Familes are welcome and encouraged to take the buses, just put “Parent” where it says “Position” on the form.) Wear red if you have it!

If you have more questions about the event, read on to see the latest event flier from the Equity in Education Coalition.
