May 8th for Students

  • Farmers Market/Park Blocks Eugene, OR 97401 (map)

Join tens of thousands of educators and supporters around the state on May 8 to stand up for students. Remember to wear red!

It's time - past time - to increase school funding, invest in students, and fund our schools.

Educators across Oregon are conducting a one day walkout and day of action on May 8 to advocate increased school funding after decades of disinvestment. This unprecedented action follows teacher actions around the nation, from places like West Virginia, Oklahoma, Arizona, and our own 5,000 person March for Our Students in Salem in February.
