CHICAGO – CTU President Stacy Davis Gates today issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decisions to upend relief for student loan borrowers and roll back rights of the LGBTQIA community: “Today, the Supreme Court’s decisions to block the Biden administration’s student debt relief plan and their move to restrict the rights of the LGBTQIA community represent yet another attack on students, the Black and Brown community and all those seeking to live out their American Dream. Today’s decision comes on the heels of the court’s move yesterday to gut Affirmative Action in higher-education admissions, and it has turned a blind eye to the compounded impact of racism and discrimination on our nation.”
The Chicago Teachers Union issued this statement today regarding the U.S. Supreme Court ruling to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, striking down the constitutional right to abortion.
The Chicago Teachers Union stands in defense of reproductive rights and encourages members to make their voices heard at rallies this weekend to defend abortion rights in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe vs. Wade.
This resolution was brought from the floor and adopted by the CTU House of Delegates at its May 4, 2022, meeting.
