Wednesday, May 26, 2010 is the start of the National Speak Up for Education & Kids Campaign. It begins with a National Call-in Day.
Take Action:
On Wednesday May 26th, call 1-866-608-6355 to contact your Representative in Congress.
You will hear talking points and will be connected to the United States Capitol Switchboard - ask for your House Member. To find out who your House Member is, either ask the operator or click here.
Tell your Representative to protect the future of our children by supporting funding to save education jobs in the emergency funding bill.
With 300,000 education layoffs expected, our students are the ones who will suffer - in overcrowded classrooms, with less time in school, and without the teachers and school staff needed to give them individual attention and help.
Share this call-in day information with your friends. Ask them to call Congress on May 26th and inform their friends about this crucial legislation.
Other Actions You Can Take to Speak Up for Education And Kids:
E-mail your Members of Congress to support funding to save education jobs in the emergency supplemental appropriations bill.
Become a "fan" of Speak up for Education and Kids on Facebook - a community of educators and concerned citizens - now more than 12,000 strong - who believe our nation has a responsibility to invest in education and avoid the short-sighted cuts that could deprive our students of the bright futures they deserve.
Print the poster for our event and post at your school or workplace.
View and share this video with friends and colleagues.
Congress can't ignore a strong message from all across the nation. Make your voice heard! Participate in the National Call-In Day and speak up for education and kids! Visit www.educationvotes.nea.org for more information.
