This stops with our kids. Don’t let Trump & DeVos destroy our public schools!

Trump’s budget will deal a heavy blow to public education. It will strip $10.6 billion from federal education initiatives (including enrichment and afterschool programs for poorer school districts, physical education, anti-bullying campaigns and advanced coursework), and funnel a big hunk of our money into private, religious and charter schools.

Script:  I’m calling (___) today to urge support for public education in the United States.  Trump’s budget strips critical funds from our public schools, which will negatively impact a whole generation of children.

Urge YES on the Preserving Data in Government Act (S.960)

Data is disappearing from various Federal websites that we paid for and that researchers, scientists, economists, entrepreneurs and ordinary citizens rely on. This bill would stop this. As co-sponsor Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) said,  “Once data has been published and made available to the public, it should remain available to the public.”  Let’s see that this bill passes.

Script: Hi I’m calling to urge Senator … to support the Preserving Data in Government Act (S.960). This is a bill that would protect public data on Federal websites. Data that we paid for and that we have a right to access.
