NYCCAL will be holding a press conference on Monday, March 26th at 9:30am, directly before heading in to City Hall to testify at the NYC Council’s budget hearing on immigration. If we make enough noise, and the $12 million we're fighting for again gets into the Mayor's Executive budget, it would mean it could be 'baselined'. Baselining funding will mean we won't have to ask for it every year but instead we will see it get woven into RFPs, more stable agency budget lines, etc. over time.
Please sign up here http://bit.ly/pressconf31618 if YOU and/or YOUR STUDENTS can join the rally and also id YOU and/or YOUR STUDENTS can testify at the hearing.
Ira Yankwitt will be delivering NYCCAL’s official testimony but we need others to echo the importance of adult literacy education!
