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 teachers and the Invest in Education Act. This bill creates a tax evasion scheme for greedy millionaires to take $378 million from public schools. Voters approved INVESTinED because we believe in our students and educators and SB1783 undermines the will of the voters by cutting these education funds.

Ask your legislators to vote NO on SB1783!
