Protect CPS Kids!

Across the city, school budgets have been slashed - taking with them teachers, programs, counselors, even basic supplies. There are many proposed solutions to this problem, but they all start with the same step - letting your legislators know that you believe education is a priority in Chicago.

The short form here does all of the work for you - it quickly locates your legislators based on your address, provides you a prewritten message that you can edit any way you like, and handles all of the addressing and sending.

A few years ago, lawmakers threatened to increase class sizes to 37 students. Parents and community members just like you used this site to send over 150,000 messages to legislators, and turned back the attack on our children's - and our city's - future. So please invest 30 seconds to let your legislators know where you stand - and share this site with your friends, family and community.

Bridgeport Residents - Please call Alderman Balcer and Senator Munoz:

For Alderman Balcer (773) 254-6677
Thank you for supporting our schools. We need you to ask CPS to provide a 10 year plan that improves all of our Bridgeport/Chinatown area schools. A plan that lists the facilities, curriculum, tech, environmental and community support our children deserve. Please join us at the September 11 CPS hearing and insist that CPS create a real plan. Thank you.

For Sen. Munoz (773) 869-9050 or (217) 782-9415
The CPS 10 Year Master Facilities Plan draft needs to be revised to show how CPS intents to improve our Bridgeport/Chinatown schools. We need to know what CPS plans to improve the facilities, curriculum, tech, environmental and community support our children deserve. Please join us at the September 11 CPS hearing and insist that CPS create a real plan. Thank you.

Then, join us on September 11!
It is very important that Bridgeport Alliance and all of its allies have a presence at this meeting and provide testimony as to how they want to see CPS facilities (i.e. what type of school is in them) run over the next 10 years.
