HAPPENING NOW: @rweingarten talks to the @nysut conference of leaders. Follow along in the thread below.
.@rweingarten: After the 2016 election, several of us got together in Washington DC to see what we needed to do next. Rather than talking about politicians to voting, we now focus first on what the values are to lead people to vote.
.@rweingarten: It doesn't matter where you are or how you've voted in the past. What matters is, what are the values we're voting on? I know everyone in this room believes in well-resourced public education as an aspiration agent.

Today we are launching the AFT #ReadingOpensTheWorld literacy campaign! We are at Malcolm X Elementary school in Washington, D.C. and we are joined by Pres @rweingarten, @fedingram, @AFTEVPDeJesus, @AFLCIO Pres @lizshuler, @WTUTeacher Pres Jackie Pogue Lyons, and @FirstBook.
I’d like to thank my AFT family for honoring the WTU by kicking off their literacy campaign right here in the District of Columbia, here at Malcom X.
