Feb. 15 Advocacy
In a blitz designed to coincide with the union's testimony opposing $1.5 billion in proposed education cuts, hundreds of rank-and-file educators came to Albany Feb. 15. Teachers and support staff, along with college faculty and professionals, will urge elected legislators to reject education cuts and share the pressing message: "Don't erase our progress."

More than 300 teachers and other education activists visited their hometown legislators in their Albany offices. They shared stories about how deep budget cuts would impact programs, student achievement and the state's fragile economic recovery and also attended testimony on K-12 education.
