Rally in Washington on June 17 - Don't Leave Us Behind


A Rally for Parents, Students, and Advocates

Parent and advocacy groups have joined together in a coalition to organize a rally at the Senate in Washington DC on June 17, 2003.

The US House of Representatives stripped the rights of students with disabilities when they amended IDEA!

The House assaults on IDEA would segregate students with disabilities, punish them for their disabilities, and remove accountability for a Free and Appropriate Public Education!

Thousands of letters were sent and phone calls made. They were ignored! Don’t let the Senate do the same. Let’s tell Senators that civil rights must be enforced, not taken away. Let’s show them the faces of parents and students who depend on IDEA!

What you Can Do...

Come to Washington DC
Organize, Recruit, Caravan
Tuesday, June 17
Rally and Press Conference
1:00 to 2:30 PM
Room G50 Dirksen Senate Office Building
