United Teachers of Richmond  CTA/NEA -

3 days left!

Hello UTR members,
We only 3 more days of outreach left until Election Day! Please join us this weekend to get teacher friendly board members elected for the WCCUSD School Board and get Measure T passed!
We will be phone banking and canvassing from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM tomorrow from the UTR office. We will have donuts, coffee, prizes, and a great time! We will also phone bank and canvass on Sunday from 12:30 PM to 3:30 PM from UTR.
Last day to phone bank will be Monday, November 7th from 3:30 to 7:00 PM!
Remember that if you join us to phone bank or canvass you will get a $20 dollar target gift card and you’ll be entered for our raffle to win one of our wonderful prizes: (3) Southwest vouchers worth $200 each, (1) Chrome book, (2) Tablets, and (5) cases of copy paper.
If you would like to spread the word in social media such as Facebook or email, here is something you can post:

This November 8th, West Contra Costa Educators are taking the following positions:

– YES on Measure T

– YES on Prop 55
– YES on Prop 58
– YES on Prop 52
– MISTER PHILLIPS and CARLOS TABOADA for WCCUSD School Board
– ELAINE MERRIWEATHER for Contra Costa County Board of Education
– KAMALA HARRIS for US Senate
– HILLARY CLINTON for President

I would like to leave you with a story. Today as I entered a school I heard a 1st grade student share with his teacher “I’m not excited for my weekend because the elections will end. There’s a chance Trump will win and my family and I will have to go back to Mexico and I don’t want to leave my friends”. The teacher at that point hugged him since he started crying and she shared with him that it would not happen.
The scary reality about this story is that we don’t actually know what will happen. We need to unite these last few days, reach out to family, friends, and volunteer in order to get thoughtful, culturally responsive, and intelligent candidates elected nationally and regionally. I hope to see you at the UTR office this weekend (700 Crestview Dr. Pinole CA). Thank you.
In solidarity,
Demetrio Gonzalez
