For too long, the horrific conditions in some of our schools have remained hidden from public view. Gov. Christie has refused to take action and our children are paying the price.
On Wednesday, Oct. 23
call Gov. Christie and
Tell Governor Christie:
I am a (parent/educator/resident) from (name of school & city) calling to express my disappointment with the lack of SDA action to repair and modernize our schools.
• specific examples of unhealthy or unsafe conditions in your school (such as mold, leaking roofs, exposed electrical, overcrowding, etc.)
• how have these poor conditions hurt you, the community, your child or students (such as missed school days, breathing problems, asthma, poor student achievement, feeling unsafe and forgotten.)

See for yourself
The Day of Action on Oct. 23 will also feature a State House art show: A blind eye: the immorality of inaction. The show, which is open to the press and the public, begins at 11 a.m. on the State House steps, 124 West State Street, Trenton, NJ. It will make public the reality our children live every day.
