- Hi, all! Due to a conflict in schedule, the Senate Hearing on the Keeping All Students Safe Act has been postponed till July 12 (see notice below). This gives us more time to make our voices heard in support of this federal law that would protect kids in school! Please use this additional time to call, fax, write and/or email your federal legislators and ask them to protect kids by passing this law!NOTICE:Attached you will find a notice about the postponement of the hearing on Thursday, July 12th. The reason for the postponement is the 10:00 announcement from the Supreme Court regarding the Affordable Care Act.
