Start petition to officially make July 30th National Support Public Education Day
SOS Million Teacher March event. Location: everywhere
July 30, 2011, National Support Public Education Day, will be a day filled with activities from sun up
to sun down and beyond. In order to involve the maximum amount of people in this event, it will be
both a community-by-community event and an online virtual event. The goal is to get people from
all across America to participate in this day of national support and activism for the public education
system. On July 30, 2010, we had several "mini-marches" in places like Florida, Illinois, and
Wisconsin. We also collected shoelaces to represent all of the people willing to march for public
education. This year, we will do much more. Within the next couple of days, I will be posting a
tentative agenda for July 30th.
It is important that every teacher, every parent, every family member, every community member, and
every American have the opportunity to participate in this march regardless of their current economic
situation. Therefore, this will be an event that EVERYONE will be able to attend because it will be
occurring in your own communities and across the internet.
We are currently looking for volunteers to help organize marches in their own communities. If you
are interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling where you are from, and
also be sure to join the SOSMTM Wiggio site.
