LOS ANGELES, MARCH 15, 2023: Sylvia Garcia from Bassett Street Elementary School speaks into a megaphone as she and hundreds other teachers attend an L.A. Unified rally at Grand Park in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday evening. United Teachers of Los Angeles and SEIU 99 members will hold a joint rally at Grand Park in a historic show of solidarity.
