A note from a friend:
Attached you will see our media advisory that we are just about to get out. We are part of a national alliance of youth, parent and community groups who have joined to fight against school closures. We believe they have displaced our communities, in some places like Chicago increased the violence and are a violation of our civil rights.
Cities like Detroit, Chicago, NOLA, Boston, Philly just to name a few will ride to D.C. on what we are labeling our “Journey for Justice”. 500 youth and parents will converge on D.C. on the 20th of September and send a message to the President and Duncan.
Can you help us? We are really trying to get the #journey4justice hashtag to trend. We have already begun to tweet using it and are working to create a strategy behind this. We have a powerful video of rallies and protests over the years from different cities around school closure. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6X5rRI7MyE&feature=youtu.be
Would love any ideas you might have about getting others to participate on Twitter or FB?
