Referendums
75,321 signatures by August 7, 2017*

Save Our Schools SB1431 Proposition
We support school choice, but we do not support the expansion of ESAs, commonly known as vouchers, that take even more money away from public education when our schools are already in crisis. We share the belief that strong schools for all our kids will create a strong state and a more prosperous Arizona. We will put SB1431 voucher expansion on the ballot, and it will be the first step toward restoring the Arizona educational system.


Refer 2404: Grassroots Citizens Concerned
Grassroots Citizens Concerned, a nonpartisan political organization, circulating a petition to repeal the newly-signed law, HB 2404, on the grounds that it makes grassroots endeavors such as these cost-prohibitive to ordinary citizens.


Voters Of Arizona
In April, the current Arizona legislature passed two bills (HB2244 and HB2404) designed to block our access to that power. The Voters of Arizona, a non-partisan political committee, is challenging that power grab, gathering signatures for a referendum and defending Arizona’s constitution.

*NOTE – Signatures must be submitted no later than 90 days after the end of the legislative session, or 90 days from May 10, 2017.  The referendums are planned for the 2018 November ballot.
