Rev. William Barber
“Rosa Parks didn’t just decide to sit down one day. We can’t choose the moment that the flame bursts out, but we can be the kindling.”-- New York Times 
Sen. Bernie Sanders 
 “The current model and the current strategy of the Democratic Party is an absolute failure,” Mr. Sanders said to booming applause, arguing that Democrats need “fundamental change.” -- At People's Summit
 CTU vice president Jesse Sharkey
“The CTU supports union rights for all educators in Chicago, including charter school teachers. Local 4343’s vote for unity takes a stand for using our collective power to support quality public education for the students we all serve.” -- ChiACTS Local 4343
Chris Baehrend, president of ChiACTS Local 4343
“This vote for unification is a vote for educators with both ChiACTS and the CTU to speak with a stronger collaborative voice for real educational justice for all of our students." -- Ward Room 
Mary Bouwense, president of the Grand Rapids Education Association
“The Christian schools in Michigan were set up to be separate from the state, and now [DeVos'] intent is to use the state to finance them. I know she says it’s about choice, but it’s really about funneling money to what she knows... I think her agenda is shaped by her idea of what God wants for the world." -- New York Times
