Harrisburg Mock Bake Sale for Public Education

Education Voters

On April 9th, Education Voters is partnering with Harrisburg parents, students and community members to hold a mock bake sale to protest state budget cuts and insufficient funding for public schools.  The message we are sending is that we can't possibly sell enough cookies to cover the budget gaps caused by systemic underfunding of public schools.  Elected officials at all levels need to come up with the necessary resources to provide an opportunity to learn for every student!

This event will be held at 12PM in the Capitol Rotunda in Harrisburg on Monday, April 9th.

Please join us for this event--plan to attend and help spread the word.  AND, this is only part of a statewide effort to create these types of events across the Commonwealth throughout next week, so feel free to share this with people in other areas.

When:  April 9th, 12:00pm (Noon)
Where:  State Capitol Rotunda, Harrisburg, PA
What you can do:  Plan to attend and bring a friend. Bring a few baggies with cookies for distribution too.

We hope to see you at this important event, however if you are unable, please consider hosting your own event OR delivering cookies to your state legislator's office any time the week of April 9th.  Check out the Facebook page with more information HERE.
