Today in NYC: Protest the Lies

Please consider coming to this event and help spread the word!

PARENTS "Won’t Back Down"

The film “Won’t Back Down” is backed by conservative billionaires Rupert Murdoch and Philip Anschtuz. The law portrayed in the movie, called parent trigger, claims to be about parent empowerment but actually promotes the privatization of public schools and blaming teachers for struggling schools. The movie claims to be 'inspired by actual events' but not a single school in the country has successfully used Parent Trigger. 

This Sunday, at the red carpet world premiere of the movie, JOIN us in showing Hollywood & the paparazzi the REAL parents who "won't back down."

=> Sunday at 4:30pm
Ziegfeld Theatre
Meet at corner on 54th st. and 6th Ave. Midtown
