Capitol Hill Day is May 7, 2019

We need your voice in Washington, D.C. as we speak up and speak out against the proposed funding cuts! There are more than 100 new legislators who need to know that adult education is important. Now is our time to raise our visibility with them and let them know that the $156 million in proposed funding cuts would be devastating to our field!

Please join me and our board on May 7th for face to face meetings with legislators to educate them on the value of our work. We'll provide you with data sheets, fact sheets, and support. We'll also provide a pre-meeting webinar. Add your voice and for more details today.

In the meantime, we encourage you and the members of your association can take action today. Click below to access our "rapid response" tool and make your voice heard. It takes just 5 minutes and can make all the difference in ensuring your legislator hears from you that adult education is important.

If you have any questions at all, please contact All hands on deck as we educate legislators and elevate our field of adult education!
