Take action on behalf of the 65,000+ children being denied an education

Yet another attempt to weaken education law is in the works, and we need your help to stop it.
Pending legislation threatens to undo substantial equivalency regulations on education in yeshivas.
Once again, this clandestine attempt to undo years of progress relies on the secrecy of closed-room dealing to hide the impact from the public until it’s too late to fight back.

Send a message to the state legislature and tell our lawmakers that legislative policy must protect the educational rights of nonpublic school students.

These students need your help! 
Every letter makes an impact. Use the form on this page to contact our legislators and let them know that every child deserves an education.

Feel free to customize the message or send the basic message you see here.

Thank you!
