Protect INVESTinED

Our students and educators have dealt with decades of neglect and underfunding from the State, which is why we took the issue of education funding to the people for a vote. Passing the Invest in Education Act in 2020 was the culmination of years of organizing efforts. Despite the need for school funding and the support of voters, those in power are still trying to stop these funds through lawsuits and legislation. We will continue to fight because we know our students are worth the effort.

Senate Bill (SB)1783 is a direct attack on the Invest in Education Act. This bill creates a tax evasion scheme for large corporations to divert between $263 million and $378 million of #INVESTinED dollars away from public education and back into the hands of the wealthy. Voters approved INVESTinED because we believe in our students and educators and SB1783 undermines the will of the voters by divesting these education funds.

The Senate passed SB1783 along party lines with Republicans voting for and Democrats against. The bill is now working its way through the House of Representatives. 

We've heard that legislator's email inboxes are overwhelmed and that calling is the best way to lobby them. We need you to start calling your Representatives to stop SB1783!

Below are instructions and a form to fill out to receive an automated phone call with a script. You will then be connected to your Representatives office. It's likely you will not speak with a live person and instead leave a message on their voicemail.
