Protesting is a family affair. I was out with my family yesterday.
How are you occupying your classroom or educational setting, to stand up for what you believe?
Chad and David got it rolling. Now we need to keep it going.
Occupy Education. Reclaiming Our Voice In Education.
Protesting is a family affair in our home, too. We were very into the pro-immigration rallies here in Phoenix. People said our kids would get hurt. People said that protestors would be “hostile to whites.” Instead, we experienced a powerful solidarity and my kids experienced an education in social justice.
John, so awesome that you and your kids and partner go out onto the streets to express your political opinions. I think this really is the best kind of family modeling. Any #occupy where you are in Phoenix?
Not that I’ve seen. I’m in suburbia, but I have some roots in the city and there isn’t much going on. When there is, though (and there will be) . . .
I think people are really skittish after peaceful protestors were arrested at the immigration rallies. It was a real blow to the confidence people had that the law was on the side of the first amendment.
