Tell lawmakers to say YES to fed education help

Last Friday’s virtual rally – viewed by thousands of people – reinforced the need for federal action to help schools prevent pandemic-driven budget cuts. Watch a new video with highlights from the rally, including supportive comments from U.S. Sen.

House Resolution 267, sponsored by 10 Republican lawmakers, advocates against Congressional aid for schools. Take a moment to tell your state representative and state senator to oppose HR 267 and, instead, advocate with Congress for the passage of much needed funding for Michigan students and schools.
