Join us on May 1 for our day of action as we hit the streets of Raleigh in our sea of red.  We will march for our students, our schools and communities as we advocate to make each of those better for the people of North Carolina! Register to attend the May 1 Day of Action!

There are many other issues we need to fight for!  We would love to see you in Raleigh with your sign about what you are advocating for.
