WOMEN'S MARCH ON WASHINGTON
The MEA has secured 5 charter buses to the Women’s March on Washington which is Saturday, January 21, 2017, and we have invited AFT members to join us . The buses will be leaving at various times on Friday, January 20th from various locations around the state.
All members in good standing are invited to sign up regardless of gender identity and make our collective voices heard. This trip is a turn-around trip which means we are driving during the night (so you will need your favorite pillow and blanky), arriving approximately two hours before the March in order to have time to get on the metro and head to the event.
Snacks and drinks will be provided on each of the buses however you will need to pay for your own meals while on the road. Feel free to bring a small cooler with your own food if you so choose.
MEA members in good standing will be afforded one free seat on a bus and AFT members in good standing will be afforded a seat for $50, we will offer any open seats to family/ friends of members in good standing for $150 per seat.
