Urgent Message to All TRiO Supporters

posted Jul 12, 2011, 1:50 PM by Matthew Hyden

Dear Friends –


We are in the fight of our life!  This is truly a War on the Poor and we must stand up for the voiceless Americans who will get lost in the budget talks.  TRIO Programs have already been cut 3%, another cut will mean a loss of services and a loss of students – see information from the Council below.  Let’s Take a Stand for TRIO Students!


What Can You Do?  Take Action NOW and Get 5 Others to Take Action NOW! (Friends, Family, TRIO Alumni and Students)


Call your Congressman tomorrow (Wednesday, July 13th) and tell them “not to cut TRIO and GEAR UP in the debt ceiling and FY 2012 negotiations!” Click the link below, find your state and call tomorrow along with 5 other people!  http://www.contactingthecongress.org/


An then on Thursday (July 14th), contact your two Senators and tell them the same thing “not to cut TRIO and GEAR UP in the debt ceiling and FY 2012 negotiations!”  Their phone numbers can also be found on the link below.   http://www.contactingthecongress.org/


Thank you for loving other people’s children and fighting for them to have a shot at the American Dream
