Day of Action: Stop Trump’s Afterschool Program Cuts
June 7, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 9:00 pm
President Trump’s budget proposal singles out afterschool program funding for elimination. Now, Congress is getting ready to decide whether local afterschool and summer learning programs remain open, reduce their services, or shut their doors.
Nearly 2 million kids and working families may lose the afterschool programs they rely on if the president’s budget is enacted. Join us from your home to call Congress on June 7 to say no, we can’t afford to lose our afterschool programs.
As we make our calls, a group of brave kids will be on Capitol Hill talking about the ways afterschool has helped them beat the odds. Let’s get their backs. Join us on June 7 to make sure every phone in every congressional office rings off the hook with a loud and clear message that voters won’t accept the gutting of America’s afterschool programs.
