Mercedes Gaitan, senior office assistant at Los Angeles Trade Tech College (and a member of the American Federation of Teachers Local 1521A) will be there. Gaitan was in Wisconsin, helping feed protesters free pizza. She said,

Just because we live halfway across the country, doesn’t mean what’s happening in Wisconsin can't happen here.She will join students and activists from the environmental, faith, civil rights and immigrant rights movements. They will march in solidarity with workers under attack in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana, Florida, Michigan, New Hampshire, Maine, Missouri and elsewhere.
I will be marching on March 26 because I'd rather be involved than have my rights stripped away.
