Advocacy Alert! Ask Your SENATORS & Reps to sign LSTA & IAL letters to #FundLibraries

This is a new request to contact your SENATORS and ask them to sign the Dear Appropriator Letter in support of federal funding for the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and the Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL) program. The White House budget proposal for FY21 has eliminated this funding for the fourth year in a row. Just like last year, your advocacy is needed to restore that funding.

Please reach out to Senators Cardin and Van Hollen and ask them to sign the Dear Appropriator letters and continue their support of libraries. They have signed on to both letters every year since FY18. The previous request to contact Representatives is below. We have already made progress! Representative Sarbanes has signed on to both letters and Representative Brown has signed on to the LSTA letter.

Visit Engage to find more information and talking points, and to email or tweet your Senators and Representative.

Thank you to everyone who has and will contact their members of Congress!
