Now over 2K signatures for #PROTECTNYC Safety Demands Petition: Share it and also sign ONE more for a Remote Learning Option.
NYC Parents, families, advocates and educators/ voices are being heard with these 2 Change.org petitions for safe NYC schools. Now, let the Mayor know by calling 311.
We must keep up our fight to keep our city’s children, elderly, and immunosuppressed and most vulnerable safe from this latest Delta variant COVID wave. As a result, the 8 demands of parents, families and educators for a safe 2021-22 school year are gaining momentum.
On Thursday night, I posted a Change.org petition asking New Yorkers to support a safe and equitable return to our city schools this fall in the midst of this new surge of COVID-19. These include mandated vaccines for all those eligible, vaccine equity for underserved areas, a universal mandate for masks at DOE facilities, heightened COVID-19 testing and safety protocols for in-person learning, and a remote option for our city’s families.
It is now approaching 2k supporters. It was also featured in a New York Post article, yesterday.
Please share it with those in your circle, today.
All those who believe more should be done to ensure those in our care, you can take ACTION right now by calling 311 and tell the Mayor that we are standing in ONE VOICE.
Read the 8 demands from the petition to the 311 rep who will let De Blasio know we remain steadfast in our commitment to keep our city safe.
Also, I implore you to also sign this petition by a coalition that has been fighting for a remote learning option in the last few months. It asks not only for a remote learning option, but it spells out a clear, inclusive, equitable and culturally responsive plan for what it should look like.
We are a tribe of love. A community of New Yorkers who take care of one another.
