We Are Worth It

Wear Red Wednesdays - Photos

NJEA is working on the second phase of action to pass these bills in the state legislature and get Governor Murphy to sign them by February 1, 2019.

NJEA is asking for your support in making a visible impact by wearing Red on Wednesdays. These "Worth It Wednesdays" are designed to demonstrate our solidarity and worth to the legislature and the public (and school boards). Many districts are planning activities and "walk-ins" on the last Wednesday … stay tuned for more information from your Building Reps.
