We want to start by appreciating you, UTLA members. Many of you participated in precinct walks, community events, phone banks, and making sure to vote and take family and friends with you. All of that said, a loss is always disappointing, and the results with Measure EE are no different.
On Tuesday, Los Angeles voters will have a unique opportunity to bring much-needed resources to our city’s public schools. I support Measure EE because as a professor of education at UCLA, I know that Los Angeles schools are underfunded.
There is one overwhelming punchline for all of us between now and June 4: We need to vote, we need to get others to vote, and we need to precinct walk to pass Measure EE. Jackie Goldberg’s 71% to 29% landslide victory on May 14 was a watershed moment.
We hope you will find the resources you need and the latest news and a calendar of events. You are also a member of the AFL-CIO as your National affiliate and your Local is AFT 1021.
