OU Advocacy-PA
Mission to Harrisburg

June 11, 2014

Join OU Advocacy for a statewide mission to Pennsylvania’s capital.

We will meet with legislators about key school programs, including:

  • Support for EITC and OSTC programs
  • Funding for school officer resource grants
  • Protecting budget line items such as textbooks and Auxiliary Services

We must work to protect the EITC and OSTC programs. Philadelphia Jewish schools receive $5 million from these tax credit programs and this funding accounts for 20-40 percent of the scholarships provided at many of the local day schools.


  • 10:00 a.m.: Arrive at the Capitol
  • 10:15 a.m.-12:00 noon: Meetings with legislators
  • 12:00 noon: Lunch Reception with more than 20 Legislators
  • 1:30 p.m.: Leave Capitol

Small group meetings are being arranged with legislators, so it is very important we have an accurate count in order to coordinate these meetings.

  • Transportation

    OU Advocacy-PA will provide transportation to Harrisburg from the Philadelphia area. Buses will leave from two locations at 7:30 a.m. Expected return time is 4:00 p.m.
