Rally in Support of Education Today!

Those of you in the Phoenix area already know about this Education Rally today at the Capitol:

2nd Rally in Support of Public Education

Thursday, March 5, 4:15 p.m.: Rally in  support of public education funding at the Capitol. Lets make our voices heard and let the Governor know we are tired of the cuts to education. If you are a teacher or a concerned parent or community member, please share this so we can get representation on Thursday. Even if you can’t go, others may be able to attend. The cuts have to stop. Our teachers and students deserve better. The protest last Wednesday was a success, and we hope for even better participation this time – let’s make a statement that cannot be ignored. We aren’t just parents, or teachers or students – we are ARIZONANS WHO VOTE! This is a family friendly event, bring the kids! 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. For more information go to Facebook and follow it on Twitter at #AZSchools.

Stop Cuts

Those of us living in Baja Arizona now also have a chance to support education at a rally, thanks to the Pima County Democratic Party:

RALLY AGAINST DUCEY’S DEVASTATING DECISIONS

Cuts to education will devastate Arizona’s economy, public education and future

Tucson, AZ – The Pima County Democratic Party will host a Rally to Demand an End to Ducey’s Devastating Budget Decisions on the state budget.

Defenders of K-12 public schools, community colleges and state universities will gather from 4:30-6pm tonight front of Governor Ducey’s southern Arizona satellite office at 400 W. Congress to voice their concerns.  

“I know there many people of all political leanings who can agree that these are devastating budget decisions,” said Cheryl Cage, Chair of the Pima County Democratic Party, “If implemented this budget will have a powerfully negative effect on our economy and the long-term future of Arizona. In fact, it may well be something that we could not recover from.”

4:30 – 6:00pm
400 W. Congress (corner of Alameda and Granada)

    I am for effective demonstrations not feel good ones where everyone congratulates themselves and nothing is accomplished. Here is one that will have an effect and get the teachers and their supporters in trouble. Have teach ins after school on the history of republican contra drug dealing and treason. That will get the republican partys attention!

  2. One thing it already did was to get the issue covered on local news!
