The Teachers Revolt: From West Virginia to Oakland
July 22, 2019
East Bay DSA is proud to host author Eric Blanc and OEA 2nd Vice President Chaz Garcia for a panel discussion and Q&A on July 22 from 7:00-9:00pm.
Educators across the country are rising up against low pay, privatization, and austerity. Former high school teacher Eric Blanc has been on the ground reporting on this historic upsurge for The Nation, Jacobin, and The Guardian. His new book "Red State Revolt" describes the inspiring story of the teachers' strike wave and analyzes why it points the way forward for all working people. Join us for a discussion of the strikes — from West Virginia, to Arizona, to Oakland — and their lessons for today's struggles to defend our schools and public services for all.
Please join us from 6-7pm for an informal meet and greet, mingling, and refreshments!
