With Amnesty International, the AFT is asking members to show support for your brothers and sisters in Bahrain. Then, document it with a photo, send it to us, and we’ll post the photo on this website for Bahrain teachers—and the world—to view.
Here’s how you do it:
1. Write your message. Write a phrase in support of Bahrain’s teachers on your blackboard, whiteboard or a flip chart. Be creative! Include your name if you like, the name of your school and your city on the board, and, if you are an AFT member, write American Federation of Teachers and the name or number of your local.
2. Take a picture. Ask someone to take a picture of you with your sign. Your colleagues can be in the photo, too.
3. Send it to us. E-mail the photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. Add an additional message in the body of your e-mail, if you wish. In a few days, you will see it on this website.
4. Post it to Facebook, too. We encourage you to add the picture to your Facebook profile and invite your friends to create their own protest photos.
