Tuesday: Share Your “Why”

Today, we want to hear from you! Share your “Why” – why you became involved in education, why you’re passionate about what you do, or why you are a proud union member. Record your video on our story collection app StoryVine and using the hashtag #WeAreCEA and tagging @ColoradoEA Let’s inspire each other with our stories.

Wednesday: Advocating for Fully Funded Education, Safety, and Respect

Take a moment to reflect and share your insights! We’re using Mentimeter to gather your thoughts on what fully funded education, safety, and respect mean to you. Head over to the link provided and answer the following questions:

1️⃣ What resources would make the biggest impact for your students?
2️⃣ What would make you feel respected as an educator?
3️⃣ What would make you feel safe in your school environment?

Advocate for what we need with us by going to coloea.org/voice 

Thursday: Email Your Legislator

Today, let’s focus our advocacy efforts on a crucial issue: school safety. We urge you to email your legislator and advocate for prioritizing funding the School Safety Task Force. Together, let’s ensure our schools have the resources they need to create safe and secure environments for students and educators alike. Personalize your message and share your experiences to make a meaningful impact.
