Description

This notice was sent to METCO staff, notifying them of public hearings taking place on the new Racial Imbalance Legislation that was being discussed in 1974. It is asking them to take action and to oppose any bills that would repeal or modify the Racial Imbalance Law of 1965, as METCO administrators worried that this would negatively impact the program. The notice outlines how those who wish to support METCO can take action and gives them information on who to contact to do so.
