THE DEFENDER Quotes TEACHERS FOR CHOICE Michael Kane

3-25-21

Great thanks to Megan Redshaw, Children’s Health Defense (CHD), and THE DEFENDER for including me in their coverage of the recent lawsuit suing the Los Angeles Unified School District for requiring the COVID vaccine for all teachers and employees to return to in-person work. It’s an honor to be included in this fantastic reporting.

CHD launched this lawsuit along with the Health Freedom Defense Fund (HFDF). This is the same fund that TEACHERS FOR CHOICE is partnering with in our next phase of financing resistance to forced medical mandates on educators to maintain employmenet in New York.

“This is a very important case for educators all across America and is likely to set a precedent for all of us,” said Michael Kane, New York City teacher and founder of NY Teachers for Choice.

“Sometimes all you need is someone to stand up and say ‘No’ to remind everyone that we are completely within our rights to resist government overreach. And that is what this is — government overreach.”

Kane said the LAUSD teacher’s union “definitely plays a role in all of this” and that LA teachers need to lobby their union and threaten to pull their money from supporting the union if it doesn’t support their right to choice. “Rank-and-file union members must hold their union leadership accountable and force them to represent those who are pro-choice for all medical procedures,” Kane said.
