I received a text from Abbey Clements on Friday asking what I was doing over the weekend. She lives in CT, so I jokingly asked if she was coming over.
She had been approached by Michelle Ringuette & Randi Weingarten from AFT about writing a piece about how Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) doesn’t belong on the House Education Committee. It was her job to talk me into it.
No convincing necessary.
We spent part of the day on Saturday writing. After lots of cursing and angry typing on our respective keyboards, we sent our piece off to AFT for editing.
I have so much respect for Abbey, Michelle & Randi. They have been so supportive of me over the past three years.
This is our piece: “We lived through the shootings Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene lies about – her conspiracy theories threaten our students’ education and safety”
