Red For Ed at the State Capitol

 

IMG_3252

Today, six of us (Barry Branaugh, Katie Ardt, Kriss Whipple, Jared Young, Jamie Gregory, and Kelly Mullins) went to Salem to encourage our legislature to push for adequate funding.  Jamie and Kelly were part of the entertainment playing on the steps, and 4,000 to 5,000 people marched in support of education.  As the six of us gave up nine hours of our day off to do this, we are asking that you give up fifteen minutes of yours.

We want every REA member to email both your state Representative and your state Senator to tell them how important adequate funding is to YOU!  Simply tell them a story of the impact the lack of funding has had for YOU.  Large class sizes? Classroom clears?  Lack of mental health services?  Lack of elementary P.E., art, music?  Limited CTE opportunities?  WHAT HAS IMPACTED YOU?

Simply click this link: Find your legislator and you will get emails for both your Representative and Senator.  Send them a message!  Remember, this is the BEGINNING of this process.  Only continued pressure will result in favorable outcomes.  Please complete this task by Monday.
