Learn more -- link in our bio 😎 -- then submit a proposal today! 
  • ‪ NJEA’s officers shared this message with NJEA members today in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day: “On this day when our nation honors the memory and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we pause to consider how that legacy calls us to continued advocacy for racial, social and economic justice. “In his 1964 speech accepting the Nobel Peace Prize, Dr. King said “The rich nations must use their vast resources of wealth to develop the underdeveloped, school the unschooled, and feed the unfed. Ultimately a great nation is a compassionate nation. No individual or nation can be great if it does not have a concern for ‘the least of these.’” “What Dr. King said of our nation applies to our union as well. That is why, as a union, our advocacy for educators and public schools goes hand in hand with advocacy for our students, their families and the communities in which we all live. “Today, and always, we thank you for being part of this union that advocates on behalf of justice for all. Even as we pause to remember Dr. King’s Legacy, let us also recommit to working for the better world he dreamed of for his children and ours. ‪#MLK ‬#wearenjea
