The suggested timeline is intended to help your teams map out activities planned to build participation and support for the September 20 strike. The goal is to support your outreach efforts and thinking around mapping out an ArtBuild or a parent gathering/teach-in. Feel free to refer to it, or use the template to create your own timeline.
