The Riverside Faculty Association endorses the call for a Statewide Day of Action in Defense of Public Education on Thursday, March 1, 2012 and the March 5th March to Sacramento.
The goal is to build the broadest unity in action of students, teachers, workers, and their organizations — from Pre-K-12 through the CCs,CSUs, and UCs — to call to reverse education budget cuts, tuition increases, and layoffs, and fully fund all levels of public education by making the rich and corporations pay.
We encourage participants to continue the momentum of the Day of Action by participating in a Walk to Sacramento beginning on Thursday, March 1, which will arrive on foot to the Capitol for the Monday, March 5 rally organized by various student governments. We further support the coordination of mass non-violent actions in Sacramento.
