It’s up to US to Say NO to Budget Cuts for Adult Education

ProLiteracy is asking everyone to write letters supporting adult literacy in light of proposed federal budget cuts. Here is an excerpt from their website:

President Donald Trump’s 2018 budget proposal includes dramatic cuts to adult education funding and the complete elimination of many federal programs that support adult literacy, workforce development, and human services.

The Department of Education is facing an overall cut of $9 billion (13%), including a $95 million cut (16%) to Adult Education and Family Literacy state grants.

We need thousands of adult learners, tutors, and advocates to write letters to their local representatives urging them to support adult literacy!
Writing a letter is more effective and has more impact than sending an email! Let’s continue changing lives with literacy by writing letters and reminding our representatives how essential those resources are.  The more letters we all write, the greater chance our words will be heard.

TAKE ACTION! For the love of literacy, let’s make a statement and start writing! 

With your words, we can work together to gain continued support for adult literacy.
