Global Laser Talk September 2017
Follow Up on Request for Representative to Cosponsor the GPE Resolution
Engage the Audience: Hello! And thank you for taking my call. I’m calling to follow up on the conversation/email exchange we had over the August recess regarding the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) and H. Res. 466.
State the Problem: As you may recall from our conversation, 263 million children and youth around the globe who should be in school are not, and so I reached out to ask the Representative to cosponsor H.Res. 466, led by Reps. Reichert (R-WA) and Lowey (D-NY), which supports GPE.
Inform on a Solution: The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) is working to give more children the education they deserve. From 2018 to 2020, GPE plans to get over 25 million additional kids in the classroom for the first time, and improve the quality of learning and the school experience for millions of others. But this must be a global effort and U.S. support will be critical to leveraging additional leadership from other countries.
Call to Action: We know that ________________ understands the power of education, and we would love to add the representative’s name to the growing list of cosponsors. Would you be able to see if the Congressman/woman would cosponsor the resolution?
