Call to Action: Support SB 1270 for Better Education for Arizona's Tribal Nations!

Senate Bill - SB1270 needs your support!

Senator Peshlakai is introducing a bill that would increase funding for the Office of Indian Education in the Arizona Department of Education.

Currently the entire state of Arizona (which is home to 22 federally recognized tribes) is served by an office with only 1.5 employees. There is NO way that this office can serve the 22 Tribal Nations of Arizona with one full time employee and one half-time employee.

If you are on the Request To Speak (RTS) system, please show your support for: SB1270

SB1270 is being heard in committee Thursday, February 21 at 2 p.m. Get your comment posted by then!
