High school students of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia will be attending a Nov. 15 rally in Harrisburg to make their voices heard to legislators about the importance of school choice.
The rally will take place at the Capitol Rotunda in Harrisburg at 1 p.m.
The Pennsylvania Senate passed Senate Bill 1, the Opportunity Scholarship Act, by a vote of 27-22. Now the bill must be considered by the House of Representatives.
Senate Bill 1 will create a pilot program for school vouchers and implement a significant increase to the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program.
The Archdiocese is urging families to contact their state legislators and ask them to support school choice legislation by visiting them in person, sending letters and emails or making telephone calls.

You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
