Hello wonderful parents and community members!

We have great news.

Last weekend we ran around town collecting signatures, and our amazing lawyers filed the Notice of Intent on Tuesday.

This is the first big step in the paperwork process, and means we are on track for paper petitions in early April.

THANK YOU to our 30 proponents!!! We had incredible conversations with you. (And also thank you to everyone else on this mailing list -- we're looking forward to meeting you too!)

The one cool trick for recalling your elected officials is: there is no trick, just the hard work of signing people up for the effort, one by one.

Tell us how else you can help!

WE NEED YOU! Can you collect 100 signatures? Email a friend? Design a flyer? Answer emails? Introduce us to your alumni association / PTA / preschool / neighbors?

We need SO much help, in so many ways. Fill out this form to tell us how you can help!

(We want to hit the ground running as soon as the petitions are ready, so we're starting to plan now.)

Zoom Town Hall this Friday 7pm!!!

We wish we could meet every one of you in person, and sit down with you in our kitchen over a cup of chai. But we don’t think you’ll all fit.

Here’s the next best thing: Joel Engardio will be moderating a town hall webinar with us this Friday March 12 at 7pm. We want to see you there! (And yes, you can bring a friend.)
