Indiana Teacher's Association Alert


Tuesday, February 8

South Atrium, Indiana Statehouse
Downtown Indianapolis
5:00 - 6:00 p.m. (EDT)

Arrive early to find parking and go through Statehouse security.
This is our chance to let Indiana's elected leaders know that a strong public education system is vital to the future of our children and our state!

All Feb. 8 ISTA Lobbying activities have been moved from morning to afternoon to accommodate the Rally. A legislative briefing will be held from 1:30 - 2:30 p.m. in the South Atrium followed by lobbying with individual legislators.

Please join us for lobbying, but if you cannot, PACK YOUR CAR with family, colleagues and other supporters of public education and come to the 5 p.m. RALLY! THIS IS OUR CHANCE TO MAKE OUR PRESENCE KNOWN! The Rally will conclude by 6:00 p.m.
Wear bright colors!


Bring handmade signs &; banners!

Come prepared to let legislators know that Indiana's educators care about children and public education!
WE MUST PACK THE STATEHOUSE so that Indiana's elected leaders know that public educators are "in the house" and are not willing to turn their backs on one of the best public school systems in the country!
"The debate is not about how we will run our public schools. It is whether we will have public education. We must fight NOW. If it is not now, it may never be again!" -- Rep. Scott Pelath (HD 9)

3 Things you can do to SAVE PUBLIC EDUCATION in Indiana:
Please e-mail your representative and senator and urge them to meet with you on lobbying day and attend the Rally in person! http://www.facebook.com/l/1afb3sIlZz6ohIQ66oxkmuxY97w;capwiz.com/nea/in/state/main/?state=IN.
