The people we elect to represent us can’t do a good job if they only hear from folks who agree with them. They are up to their eyeballs in committee meetings, draft legislation, fundraisers and lobbying from those special interests. You have to be on your game to get in the game. Contact your local, state and federal elected representatives and tell them to stand up to special interests and pass laws that make schools safe.
