Defend our Public Schools

Our kids deserve better than vouchers and for-profit private schools.

Donald Trump and Betsy DeVos plan to cut over $8 billion from the Department of Education. The pain overwhelmingly falls on the poor and disadvantaged. The beneficiaries? Private schools and for-profit charters.

Betsy DeVos is an ideologue who has previously said her goal is to”confront the culture in ways that will continue to advance God’s kingdom.”Her vision is public money being siphoned to private, religious schools associated with the radical right.

Her children didn’t go to public school. She is the beneficiary of a billion-dollar family fortune. Many of the cuts remain inexplicable. Special Olympics. Adult literacy. Work study. Perkins loans. That is her vision of “God’s Kingdom on Earth.”

People’s Action is committed to fighting back. We are organizing in communities across the nation, building local power. We have trained dozens of strong, progressive candidates who will challenge the extreme right’s agenda.

We need your help. You donation means we can organize more communities, hold more candidate trainings and build a larger movement. Will you make a donation today to sustain this important effort?
