Candidate for Governor Partners with Parents’ Alliance to Feed Phoenix Students During Walkout
Due to teacher walkouts on Thursday, many South Phoenix schools are closing their doors. Thousands of students may be without food during the strike, and Arizona Parents & Allies United is partnering with candidate for governor Kevin McCormick to serve breakfast to Phoenix children during the first closure the morning of Thursday, April 26.
“What will happen to the kids if teachers walk out?” asked Arizona Parents & Allies United co-founder Skye Fernandez. “The reality of the situation is, what will happen to them if we don’t? No one is walking out on our kids. We’re walking out on the appallingly dire state of the education system.”
Fernandez is a teacher and Arizona Educators United liaison to the parents’ alliance, which was created to help keep the public informed about the #RedForEd movement.
“Governor Ducey broke his promise and forced us into an impossible situation,” added McCormick. “As a parent, I understand why teachers are walking out, and I’m going to do what I can to make sure these kids are taken care of during this crisis. This is an important time for our community to come together.”
Event: Free Breakfast for Phoenix Kids
Date: Thursday, April 26, 7:00-9:00 a.m.
