Looks like Oakland TFA is telling its members they will withhold $2,000 - $10,000 from them if they participate in the strike.

Coleman helped me to find my voice and showed me that I have an important perspective to offer as a young person. I’ve learned skills for handling problems in my own life and solving problems in my school and community. Coleman taught me how to be a leader.
