We Charge Neglect
On Thursday April 21 we will travel to Harrisburg for prophetic witness and action. After 9 long months – in which schools across the commonwealth have borrowed $1 billion to keep the doors open – the budget impasse has ended. The budget, however, does not provide for the level of funding and equity that our children need. Join us on April 21 to demand Full, Fair Funding in the 2016-17 budget.
On Thursday, April 21st we will gather at the POWER Office (1429 N. 11th St.) and depart for Harrisburg at 9:00 AM. We plan to return to Philadelphia around 5:00 PM.
We the people will not stand idly by while this immoral government continues to under-fund our schools. Legislative leaders are violating moral ethics and endangering our children’s future by depriving them of a proper education.
