CHICAGO 8/15 — In response to the recent firing of one thousand teachers and staff employed by Chicago Public Schools (CPS), Chicago students are holding a rally and demonstration outside the Thompson Center at 100 W. Randolph St., on Monday, August 15th, at 3:00 PM.

The event will show solidarity with the Chicago Teachers Union in their contract negotiations and will bring students from across the city together to stand in solidarity with their schools, communities, and teachers. This CTU Solidarity Rally is a means by which student voices can be amplified to send a message to legislators and CPS.

Starting at 3:00 PM, there will be speakers, speaking about the ongoing education crisis in Chicago, what it means to them and how it impacts their day-to-day life. The speeches will be followed by a march around the Thompson center. The rally will conclude at 5:00 PM.
