Yinzer Nation came together yesterday, making hundreds of phone calls to legislators from Southwestern Pennsylvania in support of public education. We asked our representatives to reverse the devastating budget cuts of the past two years and to find a sustainable and equitable way to fund our schools. These calls are working!
And they’re getting noticed. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette had an article on our participation in the state-wide call-in day and then ran a terrific follow-up piece in the afternoon Pittsburgh Press. In case you stayed inside to make your calls yesterday, here’s a fun video of Yinzer Nation on the phone (feel free to share this widely and encourage your networks to keep calling their legislators!).
