“March for Education” Rally for the Future | 2019
Join the “March for Education”, Rally for our Futures, hosted by GENup on Saturday, November 9th, 2019.
The November 9th March for Education is completely student-led, student-run, and student organized. Students are finally getting involved and taking back their education: go out and support them.
Students want a brighter future, and a better, more equal and fair education system. Education is important, and youth voices in education are even more important.

Our education system here in California has been left in the dust for far too long. Teachers and students are bearing the brunt of the consequences. With the 5th largest economy in the World but one of the worst states in the U.S for per pupil spending – we need to stop spending more on prisoners than we do on students. Climate Justice and education are the two foremost issues affecting the next generation, and it’s time we took more action to address the latter. With teachers whom are barely floating above the poverty line, with undergrads whom are being crushed under the weight of their student debts, and with highschool students being dumped with millions and millions in budget cuts, education reform is now, more than ever, a necessity.
