5. Stay informed: Text @acpt to 81010 to get Austin-specific Rally Day updates!

6. Why are we having Rally Day? Rally Day is a chance to show our legislators and governor that we want school finance reform, full day pre-K, NO vouchers, fair testing, and local control! Our elected officials hear all the time from special interests...now let's show them OUR interest in making sure our children get the best education they can possibly get through our public school system! We need to hold our elected officials accountable. More info on Austin ISD's legislative priorities are here: https://www.austinisd.org/legislature.
