Action Alert: Call the White House Today on behalf of Young Children! (12.19.2011)

We realize your time is in great demand today and we thank all of you who have worked tirelessly on behalf of young children.

This week was a great week for early learning in terms of federal budget increases of $60M for CCDBG and $424M for Head Start.

As the year winds down we know that the President will be considering the FY 13 budget.

On Monday December 19th advocates from across the country will be calling the White House.

Make sure the President hears from you about early learning in the FY13 budget!

Call: 202-456-1111 to be connected to the White House comment line

State:

  • Your name
  • Where you are from
  • Your organizational affiliations,
  • Please tell the President to preserve, support, and strengthen early childhood investments including child care, Head Start, and Early Head Start, Section 619 and Part C, and the Early Learning Challenge as he works on his FY 2013 budget. In a time of economic fragility, supports like early childhood give children a strong start and help their parents go back to work

Your voice counts – please call the White House today at 202-456-1111.

Calling only takes a few minutes, but it’s an extraordinarily important way to help.

Thank you for your ongoing support for early childhood. We’ll keep you updated as the budget process progresses!
