Do you work in one of the 47 schools slated for closing? Seeking Teachers to Mobilize Students in These Schools

    Do you work in one of the 47 schools slated for closing? The Urban Youth Collaborative is seeking teachers who can help UYC organize the students in those schools to fight back! Contact Hiram Rivera at: hiram_rivera@brown.edu or 212-328-9256

    UYC's call to teachers is below:

    The DOE has announced the names of the 47 schools they plan on closing...47!  The Urban Youth Collaborative has committed to working with teachers, students, & parents on stopping these closings. In order for us to do that, we would need to identify teachers in those schools willing to identify student leaders and students willing to organize in their schools to save their schools. Because we're a collaborative of high school students, we're looking to organize groups in high schools. Our parent organizers (NYC Coalition for Educational Justice) are going to be organizing middle and elementary schools.

    Here's the list of high schools slated to be closed. Can you please help us by identifying teachers and/or students in these schools who you think would be open to letting us come and help organize students in their high schools:


    The Bronx

    Christopher Columbus
