Parents United worked to draw attention to the impact of mass school closings on student safety. We helped bring American Federation of Teachers president Randi Weingarten to Philadelphia. Randi, along with City Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell and State Rep. James Roebuck, walked with parents on a dangerous mile-plus walk crossing multiple unmonitored intersections. Parents United continued to support Lea/Wilson parents through months of organizing. The parents eventually won a bus for their children.
