CALL TO ACTION! AUGUST 2022
In June 2022. at the very end of the session, Arizona Legislature voted to effectively dismantle public education by passing universal ESA vouchers, defying the will of 1.5 million Arizona voters who overwhelmingly rejected this dangerous ESA voucher expansion in 2018 through Prop 305.
We have one chance to stop this bill from going into effect – a referendum of HB2853 (Universal ESA Voucher Expansion): “Stop Voucher Expansion.” The Arizona Constitution allows voters the right to determine whether a law can go into effect via a referendum.
We must collect 118,823 valid signatures before September 24, 2022 to stop universal ESA voucher expansion. This will put the law on hold until the November 2024 election, when AZ voters will reject these destructive universal ESA vouchers once and for all.
On Sunday, August 14, we will meet at the Coffee Plantation, 7366 E Shea Blvd #101 in Scottsdale (near the Harkins at the corner of Shea and Scottsdale Road) from 11 am to 1:30 pm.
Julie Karcis will be there with petitions to sign, hand out to others to collect signatures and or notarize complete. Time is flying by! Signatures are due by September 24!
If you miss this event and would like to sign a petition, please email Julie at firstname.lastname@example.org
JOIN THE CEBV PHONE BANK
EVERY SUNDAY 4 – 6 PM
Stand Indivisible AZ has partnered with Civic Engagement Beyond Voting (CEBV) to phone banking every Sunday afternoon until the November election in an effort to remove the MAGA Republicans from the AZ Legislature. These are like no phonebanks you've ever tried--we train, we play games, chat, and call friendly voters who don't regularly vote in the midterms.
Reaching out to voters is the most effective action you can take to swing the balance of power in the AZ Legislature. Whether you make 1 phone call or 50, you're chipping away at the MAGA majority in our legislature.
Even if you've never made calls before, come give it a try: whether you speak to one voter or a dozen, it adds up to success in November.
