The Arizona Legislature passed HB2853, and Doug Ducey recently signed it into law the universal ESA expansion of school vouchers. Arizona voters overwhelming rejected the voucher expansion in 2018. We must once again stop this attack on public schools by repealing this bill by referring HB2853 to the November 2024 ballot. Blocking the universal ESA voucher program will stop state funding of parochial and private schools while adding $1 billion in funding to Arizona’s public schools each year.
In order to stop this law from going into effect, public education supporters must collect at least 118,823 signatures from registered Arizona voters by September 24. We are aiming for 200,000. This is an all-volunteer effort, so we need you! Learn more at Save Our Schools (SOS) Arizona, or download a one-page flyer (PDF).
