Take Action

Action Alert!  Siblings, two of our affiliates, the Vacaville Teachers Association and SEIU 1021 will be standing together before every school in Vacaville this Monday morning, June 3rd.  If you’re going to be in Vacaville on Monday, please send some love their way to thank them for the work they do on behalf of students in the District. Drive by and give a honk or take the time to join the Siblings in front of the schools to show your support! Also, please share this with anyone interested in public education in Vacaville.

The employees feel that Vacaville Unified School District has been stockpiling money instead of using it in the classrooms to improve the lives of our siblings and the students they serve by showing unprecedented solidarity in asking the district leadership for support.  To learn more, please visit vacateachers.org

The events are scheduled before the start of the school day.  To see what time your neighborhood school starts, go here https://www.vacavilleusd.org/times
