BMORE

The Baltimore Movement of Rank-and-File Educators (BMORE) is a diverse group of educators committed to advancing quality public schools and the labor movement. We are a caucus of the Baltimore Teachers Union, working to transform the BTU from a service union to a social justice union.  We will work to counteract Baltimore’s history of structural racism by intentionally promoting the voices and leadership of educators of color within our group. We intend to amplify the power of the people through relationship building and providing educators the tools to organize their schools and communities.

Past work includes:

CEDE

The purpose of the Caucus of Educators for Democracy and Equity (CEDE) is to organize teachers, paraprofessionals, and other BTU members such as counselors to make positive change in the district. This is *NOT* an official BTU group but rather the membership of this group is a caucus of concerned Union members that is committed to working to improve the Union itself and the District in which we work.

Past work includes:

  • Building a network of 2170 members

  • Participated in BTU lobby night

  • Participated in the “Fix the Gap” rally night with Downtown Baltimore Family Alliance

  • Supported LGBTQ students at Pride

  • Worked with BEC to fight against Hogan’s decision to withhold funding from Baltimore City Schools
