Parent Rally to Support Our Schools

Many of you have heard about the planned walkout by teachers/UTLA on May 15th.

What you should know is there is also a PARENT protest on the same morning... and YOU can be part of it. Some spirited parents at Portola Middle School have arranged a large parent protest on May 15th, complete with Board Member Tamar Galatzan and Author/Humorist/LAUSD Activist Sandra Tsing Loh as speakers, and have titled it "The Lemonade Rally" on the idea that "when life hands you lemons (like the current state of LAUSD education), make lemonade." In short -- this is your chance as parents to be mad as hell... and not take it anymore!

The protest is 10 a.m. at Balboa Park soccer fields in Encino.

For more info, go to www.lemonadeinitiative.com to see see how you can join in. Stand up and make your voices heard, LAUSD Parents!
