Arizona’s 54th Legislative Session will open in a few short weeks, and we’re hearing there are already many education bills set to move – some good, some awful.
Rumor has it there might be some great bills that will need our support. And, there will almost certainly be another ESA voucher expansion we’ll need to fight tooth and nail.
What can you do about it today, you ask? Sign up for an RTS account TODAY.
What is RTS? Request to Speak (RTS) is an online tool that allows Arizonans to voice their opinions on bills. It’s an easy way to get involved in state politics and stay informed on the bills that directly affect our public schools. Once you are signed up, you can be an “armchair education activist” and weigh in on bills right from your couch. You do not actually have to speak as the name implies, or even be present at the Capitol. Using RTS empowers everyday citizens to make sure our elected officials hear the voices of their constituents.
What do I need to do to sign up?
SIgn up here, and a “runner” from a fantastic, non-partisan group Civic Engagement Beyond Voting will go down to the Capitol for you and register your name and email in the system (this part has to be done in person). They will then email you instructions for logging in at home. It’s that simple!
