    Call your member of Congress now & tell them you support the HEROES Act!

    Some school districts in Ohio are losing more than 10% of their state funding due to unfunded private school voucher deductions. For those districts, this budget shortfall means larger classes, older textbooks and technology, and fewer school counselors and nurses. Tell your legislators to protect public education in Ohio by capping the amount that school districts can lose to vouchers.

    Under a new proposal, Trump’s Department of Agriculture would restrict a bipartisan provision called “broad-based categorical eligibility,” which gave states flexibility to ensure SNAP better serves their residents. This change would potentially end SNAP benefits for more than 3 million Americans—in particular, children, seniors and people with disabilities. We cannot let this happen.

    On June 3, the Cleveland Teachers Union Executive Board released a statement on the murder of George Floyd. The written statement was just the beginning. We know that actions speak louder than words and we are committed to the fight for racial and economic justice.
