Fund our Damn Schools RallyMay 31, 2017, 9:00amMaine State HouseJoin us Wednesday morning May 31 at 9am for a one-hour VERY VOCAL rally to tell Governor LePage and our legislators to "Fund our Damn Schools!" We need to fill the halls of the State House and let them know that we expect them to honor the will of the voters and our referendum process by fully funding schools at 55% AND taxing income over $200K an additional 3% - AS ALREADY PASSED BY VOTERS. It's time to stand up for our Maine kids and their education. Not to mention all of our Maine teachers who work so hard to lift students up.

We'll meet near the stairs in the Hall of Flags and walk the halls so that our legislators can hear us and see us as they head into session at 10am. Bring SIGNS, bring your VOICE, wear ORANGE. The future of our children, their education and the state depend on it. Absent our efforts, our schools will not get the funding they need and that we already approved.

This rally is a citizen-initiated and hosted event and is being organized by the @[558402211017270:69:Progressive Women of Maine].


*Note: we did receive one concern about using strong language in the title of this rally. And we completely understand the concern and distaste for it. That being said, we believe the gravity of the situation calls for using this language. We encourage anyone who may be offended by the title of the rally to look past a word and focus on the end goal - which is to support our education system and stand up for our voters. If our governor and some members of the legislature were not trying to undermine our referendum votes and our education system, then we wouldn't have to resort to it. It's time to stand up and fight back. However, if you would like a rally meme/photo that says "Fund our Schools!!" without the swear word, please contact us and we will email it to you to use instead.

While this is billed as a fundraiser (and our hope is to raise funds!) it is also meant as a social event, a chance to get to know each other and some of our elected officials. www.facebook.com/events/792927690865026/

Unable to attend. However, any friend of Bernie is AOK with me ! Best of Luck !
