1 year anniversary

Today it has been exactly 1 year since the first day of an incredible march for education and social justice that went from Oakland to Sacramento. It was a life-changing event for many of those involved and hopefully continues to inspire others further down the line.

A look back - Occupy SFSU member Kevin Faircloth spoke with me about how it was like working behind the scenes as an organizer of the “99 Mile March for Education and Social Justice” from Oakland, Calif. to UC Davis and what is ahead for Occupy SFSU.

Save the Millionaires Tax: Rally/Press Conference

Alright folks, I know it’s short notice, but Occupy Ed has called for a mobilization tomorrow Tuesday, March 20 to save the Millionaires Tax. At this rally and press conference, we will explain why and how we can still pass the Millionaires Tax. We urge the California Federation of Teachers and the Restoring California coalition to stick by the most popular — and most winnable — initiative for refunding California.
