At our last General Meeting, we passed a motion to put pressure on for safer schools. Considering this, the STA is starting a Red4BCed campaign to build advocacy and awareness around issues impacting our staff, students and community during this pandemic. To show we need some changes, please consider wearing red in solidarity on Fridays. Your reason for wearing red might be to urge for the same safety measures to apply to all other indoor public places! Or to create more action regarding limited sick days and how they can run out quickly, especially given the exposure rates in some schools. It might be that you’re wearing red to raise awareness of the consequences of failure to fill and having to give up prep time. Everyone has a different reason for their decision to wear red and this could be an opportunity for you to ask a colleague or two about their reason for wearing red! 

Remember – wear red on Fridays to show your support for safer schools!
