BATs Monthly Newsletter - October

Dear BATs and BAT Supporters -
We want to wish you a wonderful Fall! Fall finds BATs super busy as we fly all over the country sharing our message and vision for public education. BATs will be presenting at the Network for Public Education, the Progressive Education Network, Antioch University, and NEA See Educators Run - just to name a few.  
BATs will enter into year two of our partnership in the #WeChoose National Coalition. On September 26th the coalition had a press conference in DC. Our message has been very clear - #WeChoose Public Education NOT the illusion of choice! To view that event please go here.
Last month BATs proudly signed on as a supporter of the National Education Policy Center call to resist Washington's dangerous vision for U.S. education. You can read more here
BATs donated to Harvey, Mexico, and Puerto Rico relief efforts. We encourage all of our allies and followers to please do the same. If you need a place to donate please email us at and we can point you to someone on the ground that will use every dime of your donation towards children impacted in these areas.
Last month BATs launched our state clearinghouse website. It has been a GREAT success! Here is the link if you missed it
Here is our October Calendar!
Finally, BATs is currently engaged in our Fall Fundraiser for the entire month of October. During this fundraising cycle we are offering some really cool gifts for your kind donations! We hope you will consider becoming a monthly donor. Read more here about what we have done and what our hopes are for the new year
Thank you again for your continued support.
