“This is a special edition of STAT’s Community Huddle, geared toward educators, school staff and others involved in the #REDforEd movement. We will catch you up on what we’ve been doing across the state to engage voters and we have ideas on how to do the same in our education communities.
Besides an update on Operation Haboob and The People’s Agenda for Arizona, we will discuss best practices in meeting with candidates and lawmakers. We will also learn how to tell your own story to candidates and politicians — especially in how it relates to The People’s Agenda for Arizona.
During our statewide listening tour and online survey, we asked Arizonans to identify what they feel are the greatest challenges facing our state, and we also asked them, “What would it look like if Arizona were a place in which everyone thrived?” The issues that rose to the top are: Improve, protect and support public schools (education was our number one issue); ensure access to basic mental and physical healthcare; and protect Arizona from divisive immigration policies.
Let’s come together to ask candidates and lawmakers to sign on to The People’s Agenda for Arizona, and let’s inspire people to do what matters most right now in creating statewide change for Arizona — voting.”
