NYS News: Adult Literacy Education

Tue, Apr 24th 2018 04:00 pm

This included phone calls and visits to elected officials across New York, and an Albany rally in March that brought hundreds of advocates to the Capitol.

The power of the people prevailed!

New York State voted to adopt a budget that not only restored the proposed $1 million cut to Adult Literacy Education, but also included a $500k increase.

This is a great start, but we have much work ahead to close the gap between demand and funding--in New York State and at the national level.

LNY will keep you informed about state level issues and advocacy. We also encourage everyone to visit https://www.coabe.org/educate-and-elevate/ and get involved with advocacy on a national level.
