BATs WINTER FUNDRAISER NOW IN PROGRESS!
FEB 1-FEB. 29
BATs your support during our Fall Fundraiser was amazing. We were able to raise enough money to file the BAT Amicus Brief to the Supreme Court in the Friedrichs vs. CTA case and we were able to put an ad blasting the USDOE in the Washington Post Express. Here are links so you can see both items.
Amicus Brief is here http://www.scotusblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/14-915_bsac_Brittany_Alexander.pdf

For our Winter Fundraiser we are focusing on two items
1 Putting ads inside of metro buses in Seattle, Detroit, and Philadelphia that impress on supporting public education and not privatization.
2 We are beginning to raise money for the Summer Coalition rally and march that will be held in DC this summer from July 8-10. BATs is proudly in coalition with many education and social justice groups from around the country to plan what will be an historic event in DC. We need to be able to kick in our part for the financing of this amazing event. You can go here to read more about the July three day event. http://www.badassteacher.org/coalition-for-actions/
SO, WHAT IS OUR ASK?
BATs is a 501c4. None of our staff are paid, we are all volunteers. The money we raise goes to spreading our message and fighting off privatization. We are asking BATs, for our Winter Fundraiser Drive, to commit to a monthly donation ($5, $10, $15, $20, $25) in honor of someone who has inspired you ( a child, a teacher, a parent). We will place your name and who you are honoring on our BATs Honor Wall. This wall will be placed on our website for all to see at the end of February.
PLEASE GO HERE TO GIVE A MONTHLY DONATION http://www.badassteacher.org/
