Action needed on federal education funding – join Tuesday night NEA townhall

The U.S. Senate is poised to finally begin taking action on the next round of COVID-19 federal relief, which needs to include additional funding to help states and schools navigate this crisis.

The U.S. House passed the HEROES Act in May, and since then NEA and MEA have been calling on Congress to pass $175 billion to help states manage pandemic-driven revenue declines and meet additional costs for safe reopening of schools.  Please contact your lawmakers in D.C. and urge them to take action immediately!

Register now and join NEA tomorrow evening (Tuesday, July 28) at 7 p.m. ET for a special town hall to learn what educators, parents, and communities can do to advocate for the resources and plans we need to ensure schools reopen safely and equitably.
