Show Up & sign for Save Our Schools Arizona on July 15

SAVE OUR
PUBLIC SCHOOLS!

“AZ Legislature passed SB 1431 this year and we are saying
“HELL NO!”
This Voucher Law (SB1431) allows the little bit of money left for our teachers &  public schools to be used for private, parochial and home schooling; allowing privateers to profit from our tax dollars with almost NO accountability!

This is the only concrete way to stop this.
SHOW UP & SIGN July 15th, 9-2 pm.”

McDonalds 775 W Via Rancho Sahuarita

“WE NEED 75,000 VALID SIGNATURES BY JULY 31st

This petition is REAL, not like an online petition with no teeth. This has teeth. Once we meet our goal of 75,000 VALID signatures, SB1431 is stopped and it gets referred to the ballot in 2018 when we all get to vote NO and at the same time vote in new leadership that looks out for our students and teachers!”

Save My Care Bus tour returning

THE BUS TOUR IS BACK

“Update: The bus tour is going back out on the road for the August Congressional recess. Stay tuned for more details, and for now, check out wrap up of the first tour below.

The Save My Care bus traveled over 15,000 miles to hold 53 events in 23 states so we could hear your stories about why your health care matters. Together, we sent a loud and clear message to Congress: do not repeal the health care we rely on.

Congress is still rushing through a dangerous bill that will destroy our health care, and so our fight continues. Watch our video, then share it on Facebook and Twitter below to spread the word about what’s at stake.

https://www.savemycare.org/tourevents/ (video of bus tour from Washington D.C. to 23 states, including Arizona).

Save Our Care is launching a bus tour for August recess, so we will keep posted as we find out cities and dates the bus will be stopping; Phx and Tucson and quite possible Cochise County will be around August 4th-5th. ”
