Tell Congress to Invest in Opportunity, not Cut Key Programs

We have reviewed the budget that President Trump has proposed to Congress.  Now our U.S. Representatives and Senators are preparing their version of the federal budget. They have the final power on it.

There are many cuts in the proposed budget that will decrease opportunity and increase poverty in America. This is the OPPOSITE of what our people need. Things will be even worse for our communities if Congress makes these cuts. For a few examples: it cuts PELL Grants, eliminates AmeriCorps, cuts job training programs, Medicaid, food stamps, and affordable housing. At the same time, it decreases taxes for the wealthiest Americans. Your voice is critical in ensuring that this budget is not passed as is.

So we are asking you to join us in speaking up.
