Take Action on the Budget Today!


Last week Governor Newsom released his updated budget proposal, which proposed to cut funding for afterschool programs by $100 million. Things are moving quickly and we have limited time to convince legislators to protect this critical funding for afterschool programs and the children and families they serve every day.

Take Action: Everyone

Elected officials need to hear directly from you about what the proposed cuts to afterschool funding would mean to you, your family, and your community.

Afterschool staff, parents, and supporters: Text “Afterschool” to 52886 or click here to contact the Education Budget Committee leaders.
