    Lets make our voices heard and let the Governor know we are tired of the cuts to education. Please share this event on your timeline if you are in the State of Arizona. If you are a teacher or a concerned parent or community member, please share this so we can get representation on Wednesday. Even if you can’t go, others may be able to attend. The cuts have to stop. Our teachers and students deserve better.

    This is a family friendly event, bring the kids!

    We will start at 4pm so if you can’t make it until later that is fine we will go as late as 7pm. 

    Free parking for visitors to the Arizona Capitol Museum, House/Senate proceedings, the 9-11 Memorial and Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza is available in the Wesley Bolin Plaza parking lot. That’s located just east of the Capitol building, with one south entrance off Jefferson between 16th and 17th Avenue (Jefferson is a one way street in this area, going east) and another parking lot entrance on the north on Adams (Adams is a one way street going west).
