On Monday, more than 30,000 Oklahomans showed up at the Capitol to fight for school funding, led by teachers who are among the worst paid in the nation and are fighting to keep their public school system alive.
They're vowing to keep protesting and striking until their Republican legislature raises taxes the revenue necessary to give Oklahoma students the quality education they deserve.
Democracy for America stands with workers, period. We're ready to do everything we can to support these brave teachers as they fight GOP legislators who would rather give tax breaks to the rich than fund public schools.
Republicans are try to drive a wedge between striking teachers, students and the community. That's why our support is so important right now. Many DFA-endorsed candidates including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Randy Bryce are already standing in solidarity with the teachers -- and we need to join them by declaring our public support.
Are you ready to put an end to the GOP war against public education? Sign our pledge now to stand in solidarity with Oklahoma teachers,and all of the teachers across the country who are fighting for fair wages and public school funding now.
