Elect Respect Community Brunch and Fundraiser

Join Jesse Hagopian and the Seattle Education Association Respect Slate members for brunch

Sunday, May 4th at 1:00 PM
in the home of a Seattle School parent

RSVP here and the address and directions will be provided to you.

Jesse Hagopian and the Respect Slate are in the midst of a campaign that will determine the direction of the Seattle Education Association (SEA). They need our support to turn the Union into an organization that fights for the interests of students, teachers, and parents alike.

City Council Member Nick Licata, School Board Director Sue Peters and Real Change Director Tim Harris support Garfield High School history teacher, Jesse Hagopian, for Seattle Education Association President. Join them and others in supporting a slate that will:

• Fight for fair and meaningful student assessments
• Stand for fair and sustainable teacher evaluation
• Demand and fight for full funding of education
• Protect our right to teach culturally relevant curriculum
• Engage families and community

Join me, Melissa Westbrook. some of the Garfield MAP teachers who scraped the MAP and the Respect Slate team as we enjoy a Sunday Brunch and discuss the issues that face our students in Seattle schools.

As a bonus, we will be running “Standardized”.

Parents, teachers, students, and community members are all invited.

If you can’t make it to the Brunch but would like to donate to the campaign, go to the Donate page to make a contribution. Any amount is appreciated.
