Jun 13: Vigil for 285 lost teachers

Pittsburgh students have to say goodbye to some amazing public school teachers.  Join us on the last day of school, outside the Board of Education building.  We will light 285 candles to represent the educators we are losing as a result of the devastating PA budget cuts.

Our children need those 285 to thrive! We want to show our legislators, the school board, and the teachers that they will be missed.

We will be trying to get live TV coverage of our vigil on the 6 o’clock news, so please arrive a little early. National Book Award winning poet Terrance Hayes will be a featured speaker.

6-7 p.m. outside the Board of Education building (Bellefield Avenue in Oakland, between Forbes and Fifth). For more information see:   www.yinzercation.wordpress.com.  Please RSVP at:   http://www.facebook.com/events/233666670069569/
