Jersey City’s public school educators have been working without a contract since the beginning of the school year…and say they are in desperate need of relief from Chapter 78 – former New Jersey governor Chris Christie’s 2011 healthcare benefits overhaul.

The family of PS#34 has fought hard to rename their school after President Barack Obama and after a lengthy battle, the school has finally been named President Barack Obama Elementary School (PS34). Can you please help us reach out to President Obama and his family to ask them to join us on June 2, 2017 to attend the naming ceremony in Jersey City? You can do this by sharing our video, via social media, email, hashtags etc. Thank you…#StandwithPS34
