Caucus of Working Educators end of the year celebration

See also

This Friday from 4-8 p.m., please join the Caucus of Working Educators at the End of Year celebration at Frankford Hall located at 1210 Frankford Avenue. Come to a relaxed event to mingle and continue to learn more about the caucus. It is a celebration after a long and difficult year that started with doors opening despite a budget cuts and layoffs. Small victories like Steele, Muniz-Marin, 41,00 signatures to dissolve the SRC, the SRC refusing to accept the budget, calls and visits being made to Harrisburg, and shutting down Corbett and Christie at the Union League are just a few of the reasons that Frankford Hall should be filled.
