With earmarks eliminated and the Department of Education losing money this year, it’s imperative that we convince members of Congress to legislate the reinstatement of 2011 funds for the National Writing Project this week.
Before Congress finalizes the 2011 budget, and as it prepares for 2012′s budget fight, please continue your support for the National Writing Project by contacting your members of Congress and new members of both the House and Senate. Please use email, phone calls, blog posts, and tweets to offer them information about the NWP, a program that defies the stereotypes of pop #edreform and has – for decades – delivered real innovation ad results in the classroom and across the curriculum.

Follow the hyperlinked text to the original post and you'll find a link to legislators on Twitter. That means you can tweet your support for NWP directly to many in Congress.
