Letter Campaign to Governor Brown for Adequate Funding of Adult Education

Borrowed from Kristen Pursley's blog Save Your Adult School:

Urgent:  Write Governor Brown Today to Request Restoration of Adult Education Funding to $750 Million

Posted on
Between 2008 and 2012, funding for California’s adult schools was slashed by half and never restored.  Adult schools have a new mandate to partner more closely with community colleges and other educational organizations that serve adults, but they struggle with inadequate funding.  Governor Brown needs to hear from adult school students and teachers, from business people who rely on the adult schools to train workers, and from community members who see how their adult school enriches their community.

These letters are part of a statewide push , headed up by Assembly Member Patty Lopez (D- San Fernando) , to get adult education the funding it desperately needs.

I would recommend that letters start as follows:

Dear Governor Brown,

Today I write to you to as a (Student/Teacher/Advocate) who supports the restoration of adult education funding back to $750 million dollars.

After the start of the letter then have them tell their story, sign their name with their city and address.

To send a letter directly to the governor:
