On a late Summer evening in July, a handful of educators gathered at a local pub. Not sure of what would happen, or what could be done, what was clear was the passion evident in being educators, frustration regarding the state of public education in the district, pay, ever-increasing class sizes, and the stress that goes along with so many expectations outside of contract hours.
That’s how it began.
Barely three months later, this handful of people managed to get 250 teachers, community members and supporters to a rally in downtown Reno. On October 19th, 2019, the battle cry was heard.
