Black History Month
Now more than ever we need your engagement.  There is a lot of crazy going on in the Arizona Legislature, including the continuous attempts to suppress voters' rights, avoid responsible support and action for COVID and health safety, penalize Trans and LGBTQ+ youth & deplete education resources. 

The following CRITICAL information is from Civic Engagement Beyond Voting

You may be asking: WHAT CAN I DO? 

If you have 5 minutes:  Call House Speaker Bowers (602-926-3128) and Senate President Fann (602-926-5874.)  Urge them to advance a clean bill to WAIVE THE school spending cap, so Arizona's public schools are not hit with $1.2 billion in cuts this school year. 

  • If you have 30 minutes: Use RTS. For help, watch our 5-minute video (best on a separate device you can pause as needed) or stop by our Zoom Happy Hour for a breakout training.
  • If you have 45 minutes: Scan the list of bills in Rules committees, and plan your phone calls: these bills are likely to head to the floor this week.

  • If you have 60 minutes: Watch a committee hearing or some floor action. Once again this week, there’s something every day that’s worth your engagement: 

    • Senate Government, Monday at 2 PM (video feed here

    • House Education Committee (video feed here), Tuesday at 2 PM

    • House Ways & Means Committee (video feed here) or House Government & Elections Committee (video feed here), both Wednesday at 9 AM 

    • House or Senate floor debate on Thursday. No agendas yet, but it’s bound to be lively! 

  • Need help? Join a weekly Monday night RTS training, or drop into our Sunday afternoon RTS Happy Hour, both on Zoom. 

  • Bonus action: Take your RTS comments to the next level! Register for the next
    Letters to the Editor training on February 22. We will be joined by John Guzzon, Managing Editor of the Arizona Capitol Times.
