BATs Support Journey for Justice and Network for Public Education Campaigns to Stop Devos
BATs a few weeks ago BATs held a successful social media campaign, call in, petition, and emails to our Senators to tell them to stop Betsy Devos. NPE circulated a successful email campaign that got over 90,000 letters sent to Senators to tell them stop the Devos nomination. We must keep up the pressure because the Devos hearing is slated for January 11th.
WE MUST KEEP UP THE PRESSURE.
