Hands for Education — Simple Steps We Can Take To Stop Education Budget Cuts

Legislators and paper shufflers beware!  Change WILL take place from the bottom up!  Grassroots movements are gaining momentum — citizens are taking charge!

On Sunday, students, parents, teachers, and retired educators joined hands around the state to send state lawmakers a message!

Concerned Arizona Residents for Education, or CARE, just started 12 weeks ago but has almost 1500 members. Some members gathered in Tucson at the same time on Sunday afternoon as those in Phoenix and Flagstaff, Arizona.

Students wrote messages to the governor on pieces of paper cut in the shape of their own hands. Everyone involved is telling lawmakers to not cut education funding as they make the state budget, and prevent the hundreds of layoffs and the increase in class sizes that are already anticipated.

Writing short, simple messages on a shape of a hand stating why education budget cuts are unacceptable, is a quick and easy way to get your message to the legislators.  If we can all inspire our family, friends, coworkers, acquaintances, and strangers (anyone with a face!!) to do just that, imagine how many voices will be heard!

Legislators, NEVER UNDERESTIMATE PEOPLE’S POWER!  You’re job is to serve us and our interests, not the other way around.
