Call Now! We Are at 66 Signers on GPE! Can we Hit 70?
We are down to the wire. Rep. Schakowsky’s office is collecting signatures on the GPE letter today and tomorrow morning—your representative can still get on.
LET’S HIT OUR TARGET OF 70 SIGNERS! CALL NOW, CALL TODAY! Below is a list of the current signers. If your representative isn’t here, please make a call!
Capitol Switchboard: Ask for your Rep’s office. Speak to the foreign policy aide: 202 224-3121
Engage: I am calling to that the representative help enroll 25 million children into primary school by 2014.
Problem: Right now, 61 million children don’t have access to primary school, which means they will never read a book or use basic math to solve a business problem.
Inform: However, the Global Partnership for Education has a plan to put 25 million kids in school in 46 countries over the next 3 years if they receive the needed funding. The US can help achieve this goal if we could shift some of our current global education funding to the Global Partnership for Education. This would a high-impact, cost-effective investment.
Call to Action: Representative Jan Schakowsky is circulating a sign-on letter to Secretary of State Clinton requesting that the U.S. invest $125 million of our global education dollars into the Global Partnership for Education in 2013. Will the representative sign on to that letter? I can send you a copy.
Congratulations to all of you for your great work on this letter. Great work.
