COPS / Metro Alliance Wins $248 Million for Pre-K in San Antonio

 
One thousand COPS/Metro Alliance leaders from 35 member institutions assembled to support a successful bid for a sales tax increase that would raise $248 Million in funding for Pre-K education in San Antonio over 8 years.  In collaboration with Mayor Julian Castro, COPS / Metro Alliance leaders urged voters to pass the 1/8 cent sales tax increase in order to expand Pre-K through centers located throughout the city.  Institutional leaders organized voter turnout efforts in their congregations and neighborhoods.
