Wear #REDforED on Wednesday, May 6, 2020

This year, we especially appreciate all our NEA members who are fighting for school funding, professional pay, and better learning conditions for their students.

Show your solidarity with them by wearing red on Wednesday, May 6, 2020, and sharing a picture of yourself on social media explaining why you’re wearing #REDforED.


  • “I’m wearing #REDforED to thank all those teachers spending their own money to supply their classrooms.”
  • “I’m wearing #REDforED because our public schools need to be fully funded.”

Thank you for all that you do and for supporting our nation’s teachers.

Say Thank You with the PTA!

Teachers are out of this world! Show your appreciation with the National PTA's Teacher Appreciation Week toolkitTo help you thank the teachers in your life for helping you shoot for the moon, they've created certificates, social media graphics, flyers, and more.
