By joining the UPSET community and participating in UPSET activities you are adding your support to a movement to speak out against the cuts to education. We have for too long simply accepted the cuts and continued as best we can. Regrettably, the cuts have gone too far. We are already at a point where we all know that our students are not receiving the education that they need. This sacrificed education is hurting our students, our families, our community, and our state. If we continue to accept cuts to education, or even the status quo in education funding, we do so knowing that we are responsible for damaging our state's economy and security.

The bottom line is that we cannot continue to blindly accept the choices our lawmakers are making. We cannot continue to allow them to sacrifice our children's education which in turn sacrifices our communities' health. So take a stand today. Let your voice be heard and let them know you are not alone. You are a part of this massive movement to save education and save our communities.
