Take Action Now
Contact your elected officials now, and tell them to publicly support the Dyett 12!
No one should have to risk death to be heard. But after years of fighting, this is where community leaders find themselves.
“I never wanted to be in front of a camera. All I wanted was to be part of my kids’ education and be part of the solution. I just wanted to drop my children off and know that they would be educated the way I was. But I found every day that that was far from the reality. I now want children in this city and country to know that there are people out there fighting, willing to go hungry — for them.” Jeanette Taylor-Ramann, hunger striker
Chicago Public Schools pledged to keep Dyett open when they invited proposals for the school last year. But last week, Mayor Emanuel implied that Bronzeville may not need a high school at all. This outrageous reversal is exactly why parents were forced to take this action – and why they need our support now.
Send a message to elected officials to stand up for parents putting their lives on the line for their children.
