Subject: URGENT: Come to the State Capitol at 3 pm today!
URGENT ACTION IN MADISON (UPDATE):
If you are in Madison, please come to the Joint Finance Committee Hearing at the State Capitol (Room 412 East) at 3:00 PM TODAY, to stand up for students who will be tremendously affected by massive cuts to public education, and the repeal of in-state tuition rights for immigrant students!
The JFC is set to vote on Governor Walker's destructive education budget today. The meeting, which was scheduled to start at 1:00 pm, has been delayed and is re-scheduled for 3:00 pm today.
In 2009, Wisconsin became only the eleventh state in the nation to win access to in-state tuition rates for undocumented students. This is a historic victory and we will continue fight for the civil rights of our students.
Thank you for defending the educational futures of our Wisconsin youth!
