Excerpt from The Parents Campaign email:

“Next Wednesday, we have a chance to prove that when Mississippi kids need us most, we will be there for them in droves!

The Parents’ Campaign is partnering with a whole host of education and community groups to organize a #HandsOff42 VIRTUAL RALLY on Wednesday, January 7, to stop the pro-privatization crowd from denying our children adequate funding for their schools!

Education supporters can use their smart phones, computers, or other devices to “message” legislators in every way possible. When we all email, call, tweet, Facebook, Instagram…you name it…they won’t be able to ignore us any longer. Although we won’t be there in person, our message will reach the Capitol loudly and clearly! Why do we need a rally? See details at the bottom of this email.
