ABOUT ARIZONA'S COALITION

Educators,  and other dedicated public servants are under attack in Arizona. Our public employees have dedicated their lives to difficult, often dangerous jobs, and they have always played by the rules. Now extremist politicians and Wall-Street-backed special interests want to change those rules in the middle of the game and take away the retirement security that Arizona’s working families have earned.

The Arizona Retirement Security Coalition stands up for those families. ARSC provides the public and the media with resources, research and facts about the true cost of gutting public pension systems and the extremist agenda that’s out to weaken retirement security for all Arizonans.

The risky non-reforms being pushed by Wall Street and its pet politicians will not help government budgets or the economy. Join us and help take a stand for the middle class.

Tell Your Story

The most important strategy we can use to fight the attack on ASRS is for you - and many like you- to tell why it is important to keep ASRS strong.

Make a 30 second to 1-minute video telling what the ASRS means to you.

1.  Why is your pension important to you now?

2.  Why was your pension important to you when you worked?

3.  Why is it important to keep a defined benefit system?

Using your phone, or other devise, make a short video of yourself.  Then, upload it to HERE

Example of 30 sec. video from phone.
