We need Senators Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth to take a stand against Betsy DeVos and vote no on her confirmation. Thousands of concerned citizens who want to protect public education have made calls to their offices, but they have not yet publicly stated how they'll vote.
On Tuesday, we'll be visiting their offices to make a statement that we expect them to represent their constituents and uphold the public good and the separation of church and state in our schools.
The HELP Committee vote on DeVos is on Tuesday, and we expect the floor vote soon thereafter. (Neither Durbin nor Duckworth are on the HELP committee.)
Please bring a hand-written note or postcard for both Senators demanding that they make a public commitment to vote NO on DeVos.
Meet under the red Calder sculpture in Federal Plaza, Tuesday 1/31 at noon.
If you can't deliver your notes in person, email us to make arrangements for us to deliver yours! firstname.lastname@example.org
