Participate in Red for Ed Action Week
This is it. Next week is likely the final week of the 2021 legislative session. With the news that the state has more than enough revenue to move Indiana’s starting teacher salary to $40,000 and average salary to $60,000 – our time to act is now. Let’s use next week to promote the Red For Ed movement to support funding for every student, support staff member and teacher. There are three ways to get involved.
Jam the Phones and Inboxes
Contact your legislators by email and phone using our easy advocacy program. Be sure to share the links to our calls to action with at least five of your family and friends this weekend. Let’s fill lawmakers’ inboxes and voicemail with messages supporting public schools.
Red For Ed Action in Your Local Community
Standing up for public schools back home is just as important as actions taken at the Statehouse. Ready to help plan or participate? Let us know.
Share Your Story
Leverage social media. Share your story on why public schools need more resources and educators need competitive salaries. Tag @ISTAmembers and your legislator.
Use and share our Red For Ed Action Week flyer to help organize around these important next few days. I hope you’ll join us in this last push. Now is the time for more school resources for classroom instruction and fair compensation!
