During the 2020 Charters Make a Difference Initiative, you'll have the opportunity to attend a House and/or Senate session and engage with key lawmakers on issues of public education in Michigan, sharing your story as a charter school advocate. As it comes time to vote on key public education issues, including charter school funding, your voice could be the one that makes a difference for your lawmaker.
