Advocate for Literacy
Tell Your State Legislators You Support Literacy
Wisconsin government leaders and legislators will meet to discuss the state budget. The budget is tighter than ever due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We must engage policymakers to make funding literacy a priority. We will continue talking with Gov. Evers, Lt. Gov. Barnes, state legislators, and local governments about the importance of literacy and their commitment to support it.
We are counting on YOU to lend your voice to this critical issue as well.
We need your help to make the case to State leaders:
- Find your local representative.
- Personalize then copy the text from the sample letter.
- Email your representative.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
Never underestimate the power of one voice to the right listener!
Wisconsin Literacy encourages its friends, members, and other stakeholders to raise their voices for a more literate Wisconsin.
You can speak to your local, state or federal elected officials and let them know about your involvement with literacy. Whether you are a literacy tutor, student, program director, or just someone who believes literacy is a skill we must invest in more, you can have an impact!
Find your local or state representatives and how to reach them.
