Charter Supporters Rally in Springfield to Oppose Anti-Charter Legislation
On April 8th, 1,500 charter supporters converged on Springfield to oppose a wave of anti-charter legislation that was threatening the autonomy and rights of Illinois’ charter schools. Supporters met with their legislators and asked them to vote “no” on anti-charter legislation. Many others sent messages and letters or called their legislators urging them to vote down anti-charter bills.
Our voice was heard and we were able to gain support from legislators, which led one bill to be voted down and progress on others slowed! Thank you to the many charter supporters who came down to Springfield or reached out to their legislator on our behalf.
We still need your voice! Find your legislator here and reach out to tell them to vote against anti-charter legislation still pending in Springfield.
