Ask State Legislators to Fund Public Schools and Protect Art & Music Programs!

It's time to speak up to Harrisburg in support of funding for public education.

We've been advocating at the city level to save the School District of Philadelphia from extreme budget cuts, but the education crisis isn't limited to just the city. Time is running out for our public schools—send an email to your State legislators today.

The PA State Education budget has been cut by $900 million in the last two years, and without restoration of this funding, public schools across the state will be forced to make extreme cuts in extracurricular programs and staff, including complete elimination of the already diminished art and music programs that are so essential to our students and to cultivating the creative vitality of our region.

Click here to learn more about how the State needs to get involved and send an email to State legislators asking them to commit to restoring the funding our schools so desperately need.
