Politics and Ponies

June 17, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 5:00 pm

NJEA members know that as educators and citizens, it is our responsibility to engage in political action. Join the Monmouth County Labor Coalition for a “Day at the Races” hosted by the Monmouth County Education Association (MCEA), the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO), and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) as we come together in solidarity to address the various political and economic issues. Make the trip down to Monmouth Park for a day filled with politics and ponies as we address the political concerns that face our associations, share ideas on how to get our members involved in the political process, and introduce tools that can help organize our members around the issues that matter most. Our members and guests will also have an opportunity to informally interact and speak candidly with various political candidates who are seeking elected office throughout Monmouth, Middlesex, and Ocean counties, as well as the state of New Jersey.

The event will be held on Saturday, June 17th at Monmouth Park. Gates open 11:30am. First race 1:10pm. Racing goes until approximately 5:30pm. We would appreciate it if you would RSVP no later than June 1st by utilizing the sign up form available through Eventbrite. This event is open to all members and their guests. We look forward to seeing you at this event and appreciate your continued support of the labor movement. Please note that this event is for adults only.

If you have questions, or need any additional information, please call the Monmouth County Education Association at (732) 455-5055 or email us at: mcea@mceanj.com

If you cancel or do not show up without giving at least 48 hours’ notice, your local will be charged a $35.00 cancellation fee.
