100% School Funding Day of Action

On Wednesday, June 20th students, parents, community activists, and faith leaders from different faith traditions will gather on the steps of the State Capitol Main Rotunda for POWER’s “100% For All” Rally to demand support for legislation to put 100% of the Commonwealth’s Basic Education Budget through PA’s Fair Funding Formula.

We ask you to join us as we stand in solidarity with one another and continue demanding fair and fully funded education for Pennsylvania’s public school students. In addition to a large rally, we will march to Governor Tom Wolfe’s office to pray for his support for 100% through the Formula.

Join us as we hold meetings that day with our legislators asking each one to speak out in favor of POWER’s 100% plan.

For more information please contact the event’s lead organizer Nathan Sooy (nsooy@powerinterfaith.org).
