If you are not familiar with Zoom, register using the invitation link and Prescott Indivisible will send you an invitation. You can click on it anytime prior to the meeting. Because the meeting has not started, it will not let you join but will give you a chance to make sure your video and speaker are set up correctly.
SET UP TIPS: Do not sit with any bright light behind you. If you use an ipad or iphone, make sure the screen is set to landscape mode. If you are going to use a desktop, make sure that you have a speaker. You will have a choice to select NO VIDEO or SHOW VIDEO. I suggest that you choose SHOW VIDEO. You can check all the basics out before joining the meeting, then you can go back and join the meeting before it starts.
Here is another link that goes over the basics for a first time user.
We are planning to arrange “breakout” or chat rooms in which members can discuss their most pressing issues in this very challenging time.

This easy to understand, nonpartisan presentation
- demystifies education funding,
- breaks down Arizona’s classroom crisis, and
- uncovers the facts about private school vouchers to help all audiences understand why Save Our Schools Arizona Network and many others are working to protect public education.
The Roadshow concludes with several positive actions that everyone – parents, grandparents, community members, educators, everyone concerned about our public education system can take to support and advocate for Arizona’s public schools.
We hope to “see” you there!

STATE ACTION ALERT
Call Governor Ducey
Call the Governor today. He is still refusing to issue a stay at home order… WAIT…HOLD THE PRESSES…he just did it!!!
“This order is insufficient if he does not narrow his list of ‘essential’ services. Essential services during #COVID19 are not golf and beauty salons. They are first responders, grocers, pharmacists, and few others,” tweeted Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego (D).
“There will be NO changes to the list of essential services. I urge Gov @dougducey to narrow his list to reflect those services that are truly essential to Arizonans well-being,” added Tucson Mayor Regina Romero (D)
The number of confirmed cases in Arizona is over 1,000, which means there are probably 10 times that number of actual cases.

A Request From Outlaw Dirty Money
A statement from the Co-Chairs of the Outlaw Dirty Money Initiative
With heavy hearts we announce today that the Outlaw Dirty Money Constitutional Amendment campaign otherwise known as the “Citizens Right to Know Initiative” has paused all person to person efforts to gather petition signatures.
This suspension will last until our public health experts and our elected leaders deem it prudent for our volunteers and paid gatherers to resume public contact. At that time, we will decide if enough time is left to gather enough signatures to put the issue of transparency in Arizona campaign finance before the voters in November.
As of today, Thursday March 26, the one-year anniversary of filing our initiative with the Secretary of State, we have collected over 275,000 signatures, just 81,000 short of the minimum requirement of 356,000. We were on track to qualify before the July 2nd deadline.
CONTACT YOUR LEGISLATORS:
Senator Karen Fann firstname.lastname@example.org 602-926-5874
Rep. Noel Campbell email@example.com 602-926-3124
Rep. Steve Pierce firstname.lastname@example.org 602-926-5584
ASK THEM TO:
Grant electronic signature gathering authority to municipal elections, initiatives and referenda.
Extend the deadline for filing petitions for the 2020 ballot or allow the current signatures to remain valid until the 2022 election.
The current system permits candidates for the Legislature to use E-Qual for their own petition signature requirements, yet denies those rights to municipal candidates, initiative and referenda. This crisis makes it clear why all petitions should be able to gather valid signatures electronically and not have to depend on person to person contact. We deserve equal treatment under the law
Outlaw Dirty Money will do all possible to gather signatures without person to person contact. If you would like to help, please contact us at email@example.com or call 602-633-5146.
