This vote is important—the resolution serves as a blueprint for Congressional committees on spending decisions for programs next year.

Senator Boxer
Sen. Boxer is offering an amendment to the Senate Budget Resolution to support funding for the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) initiative—the only federal program dedicated exclusively to fund afterschool, before-school and summer learning programs.Take Action! Your senators need to hear from you as soon as possible. Send an email asking them to support the Boxer Amendment on 21st CCLC to protect funding for community programs that help families and children.
