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 below 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.
