Action Alert: Help protect federal adult education funding for FY2013

House Adult Literacy Caucus Co-chairs Congressman Phil Roe (R-TN) and Congressman Ruben Hinojosa (D-TX) have issued a bipartisan Dear Colleague Letter in support of federal funding for adult education for FY2013. We need everyone to take a few minutes today to call your U.S. Representative’s office and ask him or her to sign the letter.

Members of the House of Representatives have been asked by Congressman Rehberg, Chair of the Labor HHS-Education Appropriations Subcommittee to submit their funding priorities for FY2013. We would like adult education to be a priority on every House Member’s list. This sign-on letter makes it easier for all House Members to prioritize adult education funding for FY2013. But time’s short, deadline for U.S. Representatives to sign on is March 16, 2012.

You can find a copy of the full alert here.

Congressman Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) has already signed on (Hooray!). We’ll post live updates on this blog as to which House Members have signed-to-date. Tell us if you learn that your U.S. Representative agrees to sign on.

It only takes a minute to call and another minute to ask 4-5 people to call. Please do your part today so that we can protect federal adult education funding for FY2013.

Thanks for all you do! Together we can and do make a difference every day.
