On the morning of July 9th, the Bay Shore community requested the assistance of locals and union members to support their students. The call to action was answered by three awesome PJSTA members. Given 2 hour’s notice, a pandemic, and beautiful hot summer’s day, I sincerely thank Nicollette Debenedetto, Maggie Kinane, and Maurizio Milana for joining me to support the teachers and community of Bay Shore. It was clear by the looks of gratitude on the faces in the cars that we made a difference simply by showing up and having a presence for a local union in need.
In Solidarity, Katie Kleinpeter
