Dear Seattle Education Association,
I want to thank you all for the work you do every day with our students and to make our SEA voice powerful through collective action. Over the past seven years, we put 5,000 SEA members on the streets of Seattle to fight for full funding of public education, we went on strike for the
first time in 30 years to fight for recess, equity teams and built a lasting relationship with our parent community. Together, we built relationships with our communities to fight to keep educators in classrooms and for curriculums that work for our students. We have established relationships with other unions, picketing with our school bus driver union family. We have constructed a professional growth and support system for certificated educators carried out by educators. We began a mentor program for our classified members; we are still growing. SEA members have become drivers in the changes for racial equity in the school district.
