The Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions is considering the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), which provides funding for public schools nationwide.

Access to quality education is a critical civil right, so we’re working hard to make sure that any bill Congress passes and the President signs on to contains strong, effective protections for students with disabilities.

Bullying interferes with student’s education and makes school a hostile place; students with disabilities are far more likely than their peers to be bullied, and are losing out on the education that is their right. We’re fighting to make sure the Senate includes requirements that school districts to create policies that prevent bullying and harassment. But we can’t win this fight without you.

Please call your Senators and ask them to include an anti-bullying provision in ESEA.
