Take Action on May Day

// Campaigns

May Day is coming! Join OEA in standing up for the Schools our Students Deserve as part of a national day of action at local school sites Monday, May 1, 2017.

This is a great opportunity for educators to organize at school sites and connect with their community to:    

  • Welcome, protect, and defend all students, no matter their ethnicity, gender identity, and/or immigration status.
  • Provide a safe learning environment for all students regardless of where they were born, how they look, or who they love.
  • Invest in our future by fully funding public education.
  • Protect our public schools from privatization that drains resources from public school students.


Here is how you can get involved:


  • Take the online pledge
  • Wear “Red for Ed” on May 1
  • Wear an “ALL STUDENTS” sticker (Talk to your UniServ Office about how to get one)
  • Share what you are doing for May Day on social media using the hashtag #OEAMayDay
  • Like the #OEAMayDay event on Facebook and post your photos to the event page


  • Organize a ‘WALK-IN’ before school with colleagues and community members to support all of our students
  • Take a group picture with your colleagues and post it to social media using the hashtag #OEAMayDay


  • Ask your School Board to pass a resolution confirming your district as a Safe Zone
  • Attend a public community event celebrating May Day and take an OEA May Day sign
  • Support our immigrant community by making a donation to one of our partner organizations, Causa
