Take Action Today

  • For every $1 spent on education, as much as $15 is generated in economic growth. That’s why we must fund global basic education. Tell your Member of Congress today!
  • Join the movement and urge your member of Congress to co-sponsor this important congressional resolution in support of the Global Partnership for Education.
  • Ask your members of Congress to support the Global Learning Loss Assessment Act to address education challenges due to COVID-19.
  • If you could help girls lead & have a voice in matters that impact their lives, wouldn’t you? Congress can! Tell your members of Congress to support the Girls LEAD Act & foster a new generation of empowered girls & women.
Thank you for your advocacy!
