Tell the Legislature to “Buck Up” for Wyoming Public Education
Wyoming faces a $400 million annual shortfall in its education budget, even after cutting $55 million in the past two years.
The Legislature can’t cut its way out of this budget crisis.
We need to raise new revenues now.
Join us to deliver this message to the Wyoming State Legislature on Monday, June 12, in Riverton as the Education “Recalibration” and Revenue Committees meet.
The committees will hear public testimony, so you can tell them in person why public education is important to you, your children, and Wyoming’s future.
One day prior to that meeting, on Sunday, June 11, in Lander, we’re hosting a free cookout to support public schools and prepare citizens to address the committee.
We’ll grill hot dogs and hamburgers (and veggie stuff), serve drinks, and talk about the strongest ways we can convince the Legislature to protect education funding. For people who can’t attend the committee meeting the next day, we’ll also have a letter-writing table and other ways to engage in the process. C’mon out and bring the family!
