When we fight, we win!

A strong contract is only as good as its enforcement, and that process is what ensures our safety and security long after a strike.

Black history, Black teachers, Black futures

Education has long been a battleground for civil rights struggles, and Black History Month is a perfect time to reflect on past struggles so we win more in the present and future.

Voter Suppression

They say a poor craftsman blames his tools / But I never got any to begin with / My reparation was not worth 40 acres / Forced to make masterpiece from debris / Forced to make voice with hollow throat

I am Black History

I’m scorned, adorned, and often forewarned / That the way I perform, is because I am a unicorn / A Black Man in a teacher’s uniform. Far from the norm. / A rarity in a sea of disparity, trying to seek clarity / But at times, my work is viewed as charity
