INDIANA: Betsy De Vos alert!
Betsy De Vos will be addressing the American Federation for Children today at the downtown Westin Hotel in Indianapolis. Here is the address:
Join other friends and public school advocates and protest in front of the Westin Hotel from 5:30 – 8:00. Say “no” to vouchers disguised as tax credits. Say “yes” to public schools. The event is organized by the Hendricks County Voices4Change. Read more about it here.
If you are not familiar with the American Federation for Children, read what SourceWatch has to say about this group.
“The American Federation for Children (AFC) is a conservative 501(c)(4) dark money group that promotes the school privatization agenda via the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and other avenues. It is the 501(c)(4) arm of the 501(c)(3) non-profit group the Alliance for School Choice. The group was organized and is funded by the billionaire DeVos family, who are the heirs to the Amway fortune. Former Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Scott Jensen, who was charged with multiple crimes stemming from abuse of his office, is on staff at AFC as Senior Advisor to its Government Affairs Team.”
De Vos is expected to speak in the early evening. Jeb Bush is also addressing the group.
