Donald Trump’s presidency will be a giveaway to oligarchs and one-percenters, if we don’t resist. His appointees from Goldman Sachs extracted fortunes from workers and our communities. His would-be secretary of education, billionaire Betsy DeVos, wants to privatize and sell our schools to corporations.

Starting January 17, community activists are camping out in front of Goldman Sachs to demonstrate that the people will resist this corporate takeover of our government. We’re mobilizing to support them and to tell our representatives in Albany and Washington that students, families and educators demand:

  • Resistance to the DeVos appointment & Trump’s education agenda
  • State and federal taxes to make the rich pay their share
  • More public funding for schools

12 PM - Speak out in front of park at Chambers and Greenwich
12:45 PM - March and Banner Drop at Trinity Bridge between Stuyvesant and BMCC
After Banner Drop - March to Government Sachs Encampment

Part of a national day of action organized by the Alliance to Reclaim our Schools.
