FROM: The Lakeview Sit-In and People’s School for Public Education
Celebrate Day 16 of the Lakeview Sit-In and the People’s School with a community potluck and film screening this Sunday, July 1st, at 6 pm.
For two weeks now we’ve been running a free summer program out of occupied Lakeview Elementary, serving over 30 children with programming in social justice, art, PE, and gardening. At the same time, we’ve been organizing to pressure Tony Smith and the school board to reopen all five closed elementary schools, repudiate the state debt, stop busting teacher and school workers’ unions, reverse the cuts to special education, and fully fund public education for every student. This Sunday, we kick back and grub. The potluck starts at 6 pm at the People’s School (746 Grand Ave), followed by a screening of “The Inconvenient Truth behind Waiting for Superman.” Please bring a dish or a non-alcoholic beverage to share.
