Solidarity With Dyett Hunger Strikers!


As the hunger strike to save Dyett High School from closure and reopen it as a community school enters it’s third week, we want to appeal to education justice supporters in Philadelphia and elsewhere to demonstrate support on social media. Following the SRC’s cancellation of the PFT contract, hundreds of people posted “solidarity selfies” on our website and on FB and Twitter. We want to mount a similar effort in support of the hunger strikers as they travel to Washington to ask the Secretary of Education “to do the right thing.”

Some suggested slogans:

Use hashtag #FightForDyett

From Philadelphia to Chicago
School Closures punish poor families of color

Fight for Community Schools, the schools our children deserve

Chester Upland, Philadelphia, Chicago
Same struggle, same fight

Closure and privatization not the answer
Sustainable Community Schools Now!

Hey Rahm and Arne
Black Lives Matter



Please share your solidarity selfie with PCAPS via our FB page or email it to us and we will post them all on our website.
