RedForEd: Big Wins and the Future of the Largest Worker Movement in a Generation

RedForEd: Big Wins and the Future of the Largest Worker Movement in a Generation

Session Type(s): Panel

In 2019, Denver educators went on strike and delivered a massive win for students in a state where paying teachers some of the lowest wages in the country has resulted in unsustainable turnover and disruption of students’ education. The victory was just one of a string of wins that continues for the #RedForEd movement, which stretches from West Virginia to California and has been called the largest pro-worker movement in a generation. But #RedForEd is more than strikes. From fighting for racial justice in Little Rock, to electing more educators to public office than ever, #RedForEd is an intersectional movement that is fighting for the middle class and will be pivotal in winning the 2020 presidential election.
