Chancellor Banks Congressional Testimony - Location TBD

Fight repression & scholasticide. The genocide in Gaza is an educationa issue. And as students and education workers stand up for Palestinian rights, our rights are being attacked. We must protect education from NYC to Palestine. As NYC DOE Chancellor Banks testifies in McCarthyist congressional hearings, join teachers, parents, and students in standing up for our rights to teach, learn, and protest - which are essential to fighting for a free Palestine.


Also, please consider signing an open letter to NYCDOE Chancellor Banks demanding that the DOE not capitulate to the harmful rhetoric put forth in the U.S. Congressional Hearings on Anti-Semitism.
