On March 8th dozens of members of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) from around the country arrived in Wichita. Attendees from as far away as Alaska and Connecticut came to help strengthen and energize KOSE and its members through a training and mobilization program AFT conducts annually.
During the week long program participants received morning training sessions on how to engage, organize, and activate workers. Then, in the afternoons and evenings, they developed those skills as they traveled across south-central Kansas conducting worksite visits, knocking on doors and making calls to talk to KOSE members. You may have seen or heard from them yourself.
