The Adult and Family Literacy line in the Department of Education's budget saw its first increase in 12 years by 24%
The new amount for the Adult and Family Literacy line item is $14,510,000.
We cannot stop now. PAACE’s advocacy priority for this year is to get that line item to $30 million.
Don’t wait – reach out and thank your elected officials for supporting Adult and Family Literacy Education.
Don’t stop there. Remember, in-person engagement humanizes the field, and gives legislators a firsthand experience in who you serve, what funding is used for and why additional funding is needed. It helps legislators feel bought into the field of adult education.
Invite them to your classes, give them tours of your facility and tell them about the great work that you do every day.
If you are not sure who your legislators are, you can look them up by clicking HERE and search by county or by address.
Please reach out to Cheryl at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Stay tuned for future calls to action from the PAACE Advocacy Committee.
