There isn't much time. In just a few days, Congress will vote on a budget deal and our kids' futures are on the line.
As you read this, extremists on the Budget Committee - like Chair Paul Ryan - are pushing to keep the disastrous sequester in place and make even more cuts to services that help our children thrive. That's why I'm traveling to Washington, DC this week to speak with my representatives, face-to-face.
Pledge now to call your Representative on Dec. 12.
The cuts, which have already eliminated 57,000 Head Start seats, are slated to stay in place for a decade unless Congress takes action.
Our representatives can stop these cuts by closing tax loopholes for corporations and the wealthy. Congress can turn around the damaging politics of austerity and instead make smart investments in the programs that support kids and keep communities strong.
Thousands have already stood up to demand that Congress do their job. Will you join them? Stand with children and families in your community:
Join the call-in day on Dec. 12 and urge your Representative to protect early learning and other vital programs.
Thanks for standing with us.
