  • Ed Walk for CFE

    edwalk-meme1October 10, 2016 was the 10-year anniversary of the Campaign for Fiscal Equity court decision which ruled that the state is systemically underfunding Black, Latino, and low-income students in many districts across NY. Today, our students are still suffering from this systemic neglect and we say: “enough is enough!” So we took action, by walking 150 miles to Albany, to demand that NYS fully fund education in every district in NY. #EdWalk
