An Evening with Eric Blanc, Author of “Red State Revolt: The Teacher’s Strike Wave and Working-Class Politics”
June 13, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Educators across the country are rising up against low pay, privatization, and austerity. Former high school teacher Eric Blanc has been on the ground reporting on this historic upsurge for The Nation, Jacobin, and The Guardian. His new book “Red State Revolt” describes the inspiring story of the teachers’ strike wave and analyzes why it points the way forward for all working people. Join us for a discussion of the strikes — from West Virginia to Washington, from Oklahoma to Oakland — and their lessons for today’s struggles to defend our schools and public services for all.
