Sign Universal School Voucher Referendum

July 23, 2022 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

HB2853 was signed into law. We only have until mid-September to collect 118,823 signatures to put it on the November ballot. HB2853 is a universal school voucher expansion. If it isn’t stopped, it will be the first of its kind in the United States and the death knell for public education in Arizona. It will subsidize private school education including elite and religious schools. There are no constraints on who is eligible and little accountability or transparency.

Help us get the word out. Please post this petition event on your social media accounts and share with family, friends and neighbors.
Take a petition to collect some signatures. Email jmmecc@gmail.com and we will get you everything you need.
