#NoOn2: Let's Bring This Fight Home to Victory

Greetings,                     

I write with seven days to go before Election Day. The MTA and our coalition partners have done amazing work informing voters, getting the word out that Question 2 is bad for our schools, and injecting new energy around a shared commitment to public education. Let's bring this fight all the way home to victory on November 8.

Telephone Town Hall
I will be hosting a Telephone Town Hall this Thursday starting at 7 p.m. so that together we are able to review the status of the election, share our stories and strategies, and hear how we will gear up for the final push.

If we have your phone number, you should be called within a few minutes of 7 p.m. Just pick up your phone to participate. If you prefer, or if you do not receive a call, please call in.

The toll-free number and access code are as follows:
   - Call-in number: 855.756.7520
   - Conference number (when prompted): 33520#

What Else Can We Do?
Don't let up on phone banking and canvassing. Every vote counts, and educators' voices make the difference. Go here to sign up for phone banking and here to view and sign up for events.

Let our entire Commonwealth know how committed we are to our public schools, students and communities. Join a visibility to stand out with signs and show the power of our numbers and our passion for our public schools. Go here to sign up.

When this is all done on Election Night, I want each of you to have been a part of our victory - to feel the joy of solidarity and the satisfaction of speaking up for our students and our schools. I want you to be energized and excited by the strength we have - and to go on to fight for fully funded public schools, for classrooms that are full of joy and possibility for students, and for the respect for our professional knowledge and autonomy that we deserve.

Let's Celebrate!
Let's celebrate our unity and all of our hard work on Election Night. All members are invited to a post-election #NoOn2/#massdems party starting at 8:30 p.m. in the Oval Room at the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston. In addition to meter parking downtown, you can find and reserve garage space by clicking here.

In solidarity, and in anticipation of many great things ahead,

Barbara
