Call to Action!
Protect Public Schools–Sign the Petition
The Arizona legislature has passed a “universal voucher bill” (HB2853) which was signed into law by Governor Ducey on the last day of this session. This bill makes every school-age child in Arizona eligible for a voucher to attend a private or religious school. Our tax dollars will be diverted from our already underfunded public education system to this expanded voucher program.
Public school advocacy groups immediately began a petition drive for a “citizen veto” which would put the measure on hold until a vote in November, 2024. Enough signatures must be collected by September 24th of this year.
Petitions are now available at Headquarters for your signature. This is a new petition–so even if you signed petitions previously at HQ, this was not among them. More information about the legislation and petition is available here:

WE HELP Campaign for the Summer
Instead of a May collection, we will have a Summer 2022 WE HELP campaign — May, June, July. It will be for unused/new school and craft supplies suitable for ages 5 – 14.
