Funding for critical social services, including afterschool, early childhood education, national service, and job training programs is being debated in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. The Appropriations committees are expected to vote on significant cuts to these programs, representing a dramatic reduction in our nation's safety net.

Your elected officials need to hear from constituents like YOU about the importance of funding health, education, and financial stability programs that improve opportunities for all.

Cuts to afterschool, national service and homeless assistance programs have real consequences for real people – especially teachers, young children with special needs, working families, and students with school debt.

Can we count on you to fight for the health, education, and financial stability of your community? Join us in calling on Congress to recognize the strong value of federal programs that build the capacity of people to thrive and succeed, and pass an appropriations bill that reflects our nation’s value of opportunity for all.

For the Fiscal Year 2018 appropriations bill, we were aiming to send 2,018 letters to Congress in support of robust investments in health, education, and financial stability. We have surpassed that goal but the advocacy work is not over! Help us double the number of letters and send over 4,000 letters to Congress.
