Dear MTA Members and Leaders:
Many of you have asked how you can support the families of the children and teachers who were the victims of the tragedy in Newtown, CT.   Our colleagues at the Connecticut Education Association have asked that I forward the attached message regarding their efforts to establish the Sandy Hook Memorial and Scholarship Fund.  The MTA Public Relations and Organizing Committee recently voted to donate $20,000 to the fund.  We are sharing this information in case you or your local associations would like to make a donation as well.
Paul Toner and Tim Sullivan
