ACTION ALERT: Stop Special Needs Vouchers Presence at Pro-Voucher Event in Milwaukee, Mon. July 20, 5pm!
There will be an event hosted by Sen. Ron Johnson at St. Marcus Lutheran School on Monday, July 20, 5pm — billed as a “hearing” for the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs, which he chairs. The point of the event is to promote the Milwaukee voucher program, and to complain about the ongoing investigation by the Dept. of Justice into Milwaukee voucher-school discrimination against students with disabilities.
The speaker-lineup contains only voucher proponents. No voices from the Department of Justice or Wisconsin’s disability or civil rights communities have been invited.
This calls for a Stop Special Needs Vouchers presence! Milwaukee area friends, can you show up to wear a green SSNV t-shirt and be an audience witness on Monday July 20, at 5:00 pm, at the St. Marcus Lutheran School (2215 N. Palmer Street, Milwaukee, WI)? Send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org!
