Please join FMPR President Mercedes Martinez in conversation with MORE. Pres. Martinez will discuss the issues facing the island, with a focus on the attack against public education and labor unions.

Our End Of Year Party is also downstairs at Dark Horse Pub and promises to be a great event!
All year we’ve been fighting for better working and learning conditions and a more democratic union. We have supported the Opt-Out Movement and fought against the Charters. We won the High School Executive Board seats, organized forums, attended PEPs, and marched at rallies. And we were honored to work with CPE1 in their momentous struggle to save their school and are joyful in their victory.
