NEA RA Day 3
We moved through many new business items. See the JEA Facebook page for details. We heard Judy Near, ESP of the Year from Colorado, speak. She talked about being told "Any monkey can do your job." She lead in her district to organize the ESP's into an association. She said, "Our solidarity is not for sale and never will be!" We need to stand together now more than ever. NEA Executive Director John Stocks spoke. He spoke about stopping racial profiling in schools. He said, "We cannot have a truly free America until we have a just America." The NEA choir sang three songs as part of the Independence Day celebration.
