We need to pressure the U.S. Senate to vote against confirming Betsy DeVos as secretary of education.
There is a now a chance to defeat DeVos after news broke yesterday that Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska will vote against DeVos on the Senate floor. Contact both your U.S. senators today and tell them to reject this unqualified candidate, especially if you have a GOP senator!
Take action immediately by contacting your U.S. senators to ask them to vote against DeVos, who would be disastrous to our nation's secular education. Please call and email if you can. Our automated contact system takes just a minute of your time!
Calls from constituents played a role in the two senators' vote flip against DeVos, so you can make a difference. If just one more Republican senator changes his or her vote to reject DeVos, she may not be confirmed as secretary of education.
DeVos would use tax money to fund vouchers for private, mostly religious, schools. She is a Christian evangelist who has said that she hopes to use education to "advance God's Kingdom."
Please call your senators NOW to stop DeVos and save our secular public schools!
