Help Us Advocate for Afterschool Programs

As you know, the governor's proposed FY16 budget calls for the elimination of afterschool programs that support students' academic success and keep them safe.  The federal funding source for many afterschool programs made possible by 21st Century Community Learning Centers is also in jeopardy.  The ACT Now Coalition is hosting a budget advocacy conference call on Thursday, March 5 at 11 a.m. to provide updates and discuss action steps.  Please RSVP to Kelly Talbot.   
 
Today is International Stand Up to Bullying Day.  Public News Service cites a recent poll that adults see bullying as widespread as ever, and advocates urge for a public stance against bullying.
