League of Fans Supports DC School Advocacy Rally to Protest "Millions for Stadiums, Peanuts for Schools"

When: Washington Nationals' Opening Day, Thursday, April 14 at 6:00 pm.
Where: RFK Stadium, Main Entrance on East Capitol St., SE

The "Millions for Stadiums, Peanuts for Schools" rally will send the message that a city flush with revenue, and spending at least $581 million on a new stadium, should not cut the DC Public School’s capital budget by 44 percent over the next two years as proposed in Mayor Anthony Williams’ budget. The FY 2006 budget includes no additional funding for athletic programs in DC Public Schools.

On opening day of the Nationals at RFK, school advocates will rally at the newly renovated stadium to demand that city leaders invest in school buildings just like they have chosen to invest in Major League Baseball. The rally is sponsored by the DC Public Schools Full Funding Campaign, a coalition of students, parents, school workers and concerned DC residents who believe that the conditions of DC Public Schools are unacceptable.

For more information, call the DC Public Schools Full Funding Campaign: (202) 491-6593.
