Day of Action today in Philadelphia - Fund Schools Now!

Today we will be in City Hall to make sure that we get the funding we need for Philadelphia schools. We have over 1,000 petition signatures to deliver, and dozens of teachers, principals, guidance counselors, and parents will be visiting their council members--but it may not be enough.

The city council offices' phones need to be ringing off the hook too! That's where you come in.

Click this link to call your council members today. 

Here's what you can say:

Hi, my name is ______ and I want to talk you about school funding in Philadelphia.
The state education budget continues to be inadequate and unfair; however we must also do more in Philadelphia to provide additional local resources for schools.

As you know, City Council has the power to approve $120 Million in recurring funding– and you need to act. Additionally, is it important for you as our city leaders, Council and Mayor, to work together to find the additional $75 million for schools to put in the city budget, so the city is providing the appropriate level of local support.
Please fund our schools!

Make the call here and thanks for raising your voice for education!
