Take action on the federal budget today!

Alert: Tell Congress to Invest in Opportunity, not Cut Key Programs

By: Opportunity Youth United
Jun. 1, 2017


The Trump administration’s proposed federal budget includes deep cuts to effective programs and services that young people depend on for pathways out of poverty and that their families depend on for basic housing and health care. This is the OPPOSITE of what our people need.

Congress has the final say on the budget and federal spending levels. As the people elected to represent us begin this work, they need to hear our voices.

Please take a minute to send a message to Congress using our easy action alert tool. All you need to know is your address, we’ll connect you directly to your elected officials and give you a message you can send.

Once you've entered your address, you'll see the message. Click the Instructions tab below for more guidance. If you are not an Opportunity Youth, you can customize the message.
