The Campaign to Stop a National Voucher Program Continues

We have an update and a request. The campaign to stop federal vouchers is one we can win. The House Armed Services Committee (HASC) military personnel subcommittee did not include vouchers in the base bill, nor were any amendments made in subcommittee. However, the full committee markup is set for May 9. Keep those emails and phone calls to your Senators and representatives coming. We have sent nearly 5,000 emails but we need to send more.

Send yours here. If you already sent one, ask your friends or relatives to send an email.  Just share the link: https://bit.ly/2J8Rd9P

If you have missed NPE updates on the DeVos federal voucher push, you can get up to speed on what is happening here.

It is also important to reach out to members of HASC. You can find those members here.

Here are two tweets to some HASC members to click and send. Just click on the images below, and if you are logged into Twitter a tweet will automatically be generated that you can send from your account.
