A Jam Packed Month

March has been a month filled with legislative activity and events involving a few of our local chapters.  This is just a quick summary of the goings on with the Start School Later movement. We have an urgent request for Maryland and Maine residents and have appreciated all the emails that have already been sent to legislators in those two states.

It has been thrilling to see the momentum across the country and we appreciate all you do to support Start School Later.

With gratitude,

Maribel, Terra, and the Start School Later Team
