The Network for Public Education asks Friends & Allies to join in demand for Congressional Hearings mail-in campaign.
For the next part of our campaign, we’re going old school. During the month of April, we are asking our Friends & Allies to print out and mail a copy of this letter (Also see below.) to the offices of our friends at the Education Opportunity Network in Washington D.C.. On May 17 – the 60th anniversary of the Brown vs. the Board of Education decision – we will deliver our letters to members of Congress.
We are asking our Friends & Allies to take an extra step – print out a copy, slap on a stamp and drop it in a mail box. You might want to make copies and bring them to PTA meetings or pass them out to your friends and family. In this age of email and electronic media, mail in campaigns are not very common. This will make our presentation to Congress that much more effective.
Please share this campaign via social media and remember to send your letter before the end of April! More information about this latest part of our Call for Congressional hearings can be found on the NPE website HERE.
