The Urgency to Save Democracy with Your Petition Signature Now
Show Notes

There are only a few remaining days where your signature on Arizona petitions can fight voter suppression, restore critical public education funding and eliminate "Dark Money" in our  elections. Between now and September 29th, your "John or Jane Hancock" on petitions in Arizona can reverse Republican legislation to subvert voting rights and public education, and restore accountability in our elections.

In this episode we talk with Eric Kramer the director of Arizona Deserves Better about the statewide petition signing effort in Arizona to get six referendums and one initiative on the ballot in 2022 to save Democracy in Arizona. He highlights efforts in Tucson and Coconino, Yavapai  and Maricopa counties.

Then, we drill down on petition signing efforts in Maricopa County with political activists John Ainlay and Mary Fortney and educatorJennifer Chastain. Their examples of hard work, long hours and comitment -- in this rush to overturn drastic policy measures -- should inspire us to lend our signatures and support to this "good trouble" effort.
