Urgent Action Alert: Write your Representative now, asking for exchange program funding support!
The Alliance is working with Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA)’s office to send a Congressional sign-on letter to House appropriators in support of robust exchange program funding in FY 2013, and we need to gather as many signatures for this letter as possible by COB Friday!
Please act now and write your Representative! Using the below link, urge him or her to sign Rep. Johnson’s letter in support of flat funding for Department of State exchanges at $598 million in FY 2013:
With just a few clicks of your mouse, you can forward the Alliance letter to your Representative. Feel free to send the letter as is or, even better, strengthen its impact by adding an example demonstrating the local impact of exchanges in your community. NAFSA’s state impact sheets (http://www.nafsa.org/publicpolicy/default.aspx?id=29416) have proven to be an invaluable tool in our advocacy meetings on the Hill and we encourage you to reference them in your letter.
Please act today and write your Representative now so we can get as many Members of Congress as possible to underwrite the sign-on letter in support of robust exchange funding in FY 2013.
Many thanks for your help and for raising your voice for international exchange!
