Rally at Roosevelt - April 1 Day of Action

  • Roosevelt High School 3436 West Wilson Avenue Chicago, IL, 60625 United States (map)

Rahm Emanuel, Gov. Rauner, and their allies have declared war on Chicago's working families—imposing devastating cuts on critical public services, looting the treasury for tax breaks and handouts to wealthy developers, and punishing communities of color.

Roosevelt High School is representative of this attack, having been dealt a series of budget cuts that have resulted in the loss of dozens of teachers and support staff, the removal of courses such as Latin American history, and threatened educational opportunities for Roosevelt's more than 1,000 students.

Join Roosevelt teachers and staff on the picket lines at 9 am to rally on the April 1 city-wide day of action and strike back against the Rahm-Rauner agenda. Shut it down!
