Our friends at the Naitonal Summer Learning Association shared an email with us inviting our network to take part in the Summer Learning Advocates Hill Day. If you're in the Washington, D.C. metro area, join NSLA on Capitol Hill!
The summer learning community celebrated a major win as Congress passed and the President signed a FY18 budget deal with major increases in funding for summer funding streams, including 21st Century Community Learning Centers and other Title IV programs, Title I, and AmeriCorps. However, the FY19 budget battle is already underway, with the President's budget calling to eliminate most of these funding streams yet again. Let's keep the strong support for funding summer learning going!
Please join the National Summer Learning Association on Tuesday, May 1, 2018 for a Summer Learning Advocates Hill Day in Washington, DC! We need your presence and your voices on Capitol Hill to show your representatives how important these federal funding programs are to the students in your programs and your community.
All of the event details are on the registration page: https://www.summerlearning.org/take-action/hill-day/. Students and families who can speak about why your program is personally important to them are welcome to join us.
