Take Action Now:

The Senate needs to get to business. Just vote already!

The Senate failed to vote on the historic nomination of Loretta Lynch before they left for a two-week spring recess. Today, they are back in Washington, and they need to hear from you!

>> Call your senators toll free (866-338-5720) and tell them to stop the delays and vote on Loretta Lynch’s nomination immediately.

Tell Congress - every child deserves a high-quality education

Education has always been considered the great equalizer in our society. But we know that not every child has access to a high-quality one, and we must act now to push Congress to act accordingly.

>> Send a letter to your members of Congress urging them to uphold critical principles as they begin debating the nation’s most important education law, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
