Global Education Partnerships & Advocacy

The Global Campaign for Education-US (GCE-US) invites you to join an Appropriations Advocacy Training at this month's coalition meeting for a high-level overview to learn how individuals and organizations can engage in the U.S. federal appropriations process.

With long-standing global education champion Congresswoman Nita Lowey's retirement at the end of 2020, it's more critical than ever that we each reach out to members of Congress urging them to support U.S. global education funding and leadership. 

Join us on Wednesday, February 17, 1:30 - 2:30 pm ET. 

>> Please register here today for your unique link to join on February 17th.


Congratulations to Representative Barbara Lee (CA-13), for being named as the new chair of the House Appropriations subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations (SFOPS). We look forward to working with you!
