WYOMING STUDENTS ARE WORTH EVERY PENNY
A one-penny sales tax would raise $150 million each year in revenue for Wyoming schools—$150 million doesn't solve the problem for Wyoming education. But it's one step in the right direction.
Wyoming students need your help!
Urging legislators to save our schools is as simple as one, two three ...
1) Please, tell Wyoming lawmakers that you're willing to spend an extra penny to save our schools. Review background information and a sample letter before writing Wyoming legislators through a convenient, easy-to-use platform by clicking the "Email Legislators" button, below. Send legislators a postcard on your own, or through WEA. Just fill out this form and WEA will print and mail a postcard on your behalf.
2) Educate yourself about the issues facing education. Sign up to be an Education Ally and be alerted to opportunities for in-depth training about the issues facing education and the best practices in advocating for education before the Wyoming Legislature. As an education ally, you will also be among the first notified of cyber-lobbying opportunities, newly-produced training videos, guides, and more. To be added to ranks of WEA's Education Allies, simply contact WEA Communications Director, Amanda Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org or (307) 365-2317.
3) Testify before the legislature. Providing in-person testimony is one of the most powerful vehicles for change. Legislators want and need to hear from constituents just like you. Providing testimony can seem intimidating to some, but often the experience is easier than you'd think; it can be very rewarding—even fun. If you'd like one-on-one help with the process of preparing and delivering virtual testimony advocating for education, please reach out to WEA Government Relations Director, Tate Mullen at email@example.com or (307) 286-3096.
