On February 7, the House started work to finalize the Continuing Resolution (CR) for the current year’s budget (FY 2011). To ensure that NWP is included in the budget, it is vital that the new Congress hear from you now. Please call your representatives and senators on Wednesday, February 9, and urge them to maintain support for the National Writing Project in the final FY 2011 budget for the Department of Education.
Please get the word out to other supporters of your site. The volume of calls is critical. You can check the Washington, D.C., phone numbers of your legislators at www.senate.gov and www.house.gov. Or you can call the Congressional switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected to your legislator. (from NWP Works! Ning)
