Background

We are reaching out to you to help the Invest In AZ Now coalition. Together, we are fighting back against the State Legislature and the Governor who willfully ignored the will of the people.  

The ask is simple and easy. Help reach as many people as possible today by giving @InvestInAZnow a shout-out on your social media channels and ask/remind people to sign these important petitions! There are signing events across the state, and folks can use this link to find volunteer opportunities, events, and petition stations near them.

We have until September 25 to get the signatures needed to AEA Headquarters. Then, we can refer these bills that drastically cut education funding to the ballot for the voters to reject.

There couldn’t be more at stake! As you know, our state ranks 49th for school funding and has the highest average class size in the nation. Our persistent teacher shortage crisis is getting even worse.  

1.7 million Arizonans voted to fund education last year. And polls continue to show that voters want to see significant investment in our schools. Please help get the word out about all the volunteer opportunities, events, and petition stations across Arizona.
