FY19 Sign-on Letters

Engage: Hi my name is _______, and I’m a constituent from _______________, and I’m calling for two things. The first is to thank the you and the representative for his/her past support for __________ issue through ____ action. The second is to request action on an important issue.

State the Problem: As you know, this is a critical time for FY19 spending, and the President has proposed extreme cuts to international development programs that support families, save lives, and build US partnerships around the world.

Inform on the Solution: Congress was critical in protecting global health and education programs for FY18, and can do the same for FY19, but the timeframe for that, as you know, is limited.

Call to Action: There are two Dear Colleague letters closing today, March 12: one which supports the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and one which supports maternal and child health. Will the representative sign them today? Also, can we count on the representative to send specific funding requests on the Global Fund and maternal/child health to the State and Foreign Operations Subcommittee on Appropriations by March 16? I can provide whatever information you need on the letters as well as the funding requests.
