Arizona AFL-CIO: Back to School for All
October 2 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Arizona Educators Join ‘Back to School for All’ Campaign
Aimed at Maintaining Full In-Person Learning
Arizona educators were busy this summer preparing for expanded in-person learning when students began the new school year.
After a year of trying to make remote and hybrid instruction work due to closures by the COVID-19 pandemic, educators were eager to return to what works best: in-person teaching with students together in the classroom, five days a week.
Members of the various Arizona AFL-CIO unions have joined with the Arizona Federation of Teachers’ national “Back to School for All” campaign. Across the country, AFT-AZ is partnering with school districts, parents, and the community to keep kids in school and continue in-person learning, supporting vaccination clinics, and providing information to parents and others about maintaining safe, full-time classrooms. Together we will be passing out backpacks filled with supplies to the community along with our union brothers and sisters.
On Saturday October 2nd, 2021, AZ AFL-CIO members are partnerering with AFT-AZ 8002 to pass out backpacks filled with supplies for a successful school year.
