Urge Congress to Support the Global Partnership for Education Replenishment
With the Global Partnership for Education's June 26 pledging conference quickly approaching, it is time to advocate to the U.S. government to commit $250 million over two years to the Global Partnership. The Administration will be making the final decision on the role the U.S. will play – but Congress is using its voice now to urge the Administration to step up and make an ambitious pledge. Representative Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) led a letter to President Obama from a total of 81 members of Congress asking for a U.S. pledge of $250 million over two years.
You can see the final copy of the letter here - thank you to everyone who urged their Reprensentative to sign this letter!
And since then, at least three addititional members have sent their own personal letters to the president in support of hte Global Partnership for Education, including: Rep. Dave Reichert (R-WA), Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), and Rep. Dennis Ross (R-FL).
If your member signed on, be sure to thank them! And if they didn't, you can still ask them to join the effort by sending their own letter to the Administration in support of the Global Partnership for Education!
