Teach. Organize. Win
Organize 2020 is the social justice caucus of the NC Association of Educators. Formed in response to ongoing right-wing attacks on public education, we recognize the need to build grassroots, democratic power focused on the needs of students and community first.
We are engaged in a statewide strategy to defend and transform public education, activating and training educators and parents across NC to address systemic racism and poverty not just in schools, but in our society as a whole.
In a right-to-work state, we have successfully fought off terrible teacher contracts, engaged in numerous solidarity actions with the Moral Monday movement, allied with the Fight for $15, and grown our internal membership through a series of Dismantling Racism trainings. Our fight is unique; we are building a teachers union in the South rooted in our communities.
We Need Your Help
We know $20,000 is a lot of money. But the reality is that corporations and the politicians in their back pockets are spending millions to dismantle public education. The money we raise will help us to:
Expand our infrastructure and grow our membership through a series of seven regional trainings across the state of NC through 2016
Pay a part-time grassroots organizer
Fund more Dismantling Racism trainings for educators
The Cold Reality
We relish a challenge.
As tough as this fight is, our growing resistance has already caused big problems for our opponents. We started the “Decline 2 Sign” campaign to turn down awful teacher contracts that went viral and sent politicians packing. We are turning up the heat with our each one, teach one work ethic and have steadily kept public education as a front and center issue in North Carolina.
Other Ways You Can Help
Of course we want you to contribute. Every bit counts. But we would also love for you to share this campaign. If you would be so kind as to post this link to Facebook and Twitter, say a good word about us and share through email, and contact us if you are in NC and would like to host an in-person event.
