Calling all Philadelphia public school families! Come join us on a day of family-style civic education organized by Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY) on the first day of summer, as we meet with legislators in the State Capitol and we make the case for why the Pennsylvania state budget needs more funding for schools! With Philadelphia's public schools finishing up 1 day earlier, and many summertime activities not yet starting, this is a great way to teach our kids about how our government works WHILE we stand up for public education in Pennsylvania! We'll get a tour of the State Capitol and meet face-to-face with our representatives in Harrisburg, and our kids will help us make the case for more school funding. We'll get a van or a bus, depending on the size of our caravan. Sign Up NOW! (so we can make appointments with your legislators and arrange transportation) www.pccy.org/k12caravan
Wednesday, June 5th

Meet with your state legislators to talk about how the state can support school-aged children and their families. Make a Difference as we urge them to pass a budget – the RIGHT BUDGET that expands public investments in children!
