E-mail Your Senators & Tell Them to Support Afterschool Programs During the Budget Process!

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

Email your senators now & tell them to support afterschool programs during the budget process.

This week, the Senate is expected to vote on a budget resolution for 2014. This vote is important—the resolution serves as a blueprint for Congressional committees on spending decisions for programs next year.

Sen. Boxer is offering an amendment to the Senate Budget Resolution to support funding for the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) initiative—the only federal program dedicated exclusively to fund afterschool, before-school and summer learning programs.

Take Action! Your senators need to hear from you as soon as possible. Send an email asking them to support the Boxer Amendment on 21st CCLC to protect funding for community programs that help families and children.

Greetings  NJ  Afterschool Advocates!

Please support the next generation of afterschool, before-school, and summer learning programs.
Take action now by asking your  New Jersey Senators to co-sponsor the Afterschool for America’s Children Act (S. 326).

This bipartisan bill, originally sponsored by Senators Boxer (D-CA), Murray (D-WA) and Murkowski (R-AK) in the Senate,  reauthorizes the 21st Century Community Learning Centers initiative and supports the innovative advances occurring in before-school, afterschool and summer learning programs, re-engaging children in their education and future.

Please take a moment to lend your support. All it takes is 30 seconds-it is critical to keep the funding for 21st CCLC as we know it to be in New Jersey,

Ask your families and staff to send a letter .

Guess what? No paper and pens, looking up an address- through  the  CAPWIZ link below  takes 30 seconds.
It asks for your address-immediately links you to your Congressman and our 2 State Senators.

How does it work?
