Monday Petitioning

The Campaign for America's Future is sponsoring a petition to the new Secretary of Education, telling her not to cut educational funding for millions of US students (via the Pell Grants program). You can sign the petition here, and there are links on the page for more information if you feel the need to be more informed. I know there are lots of important causes right now competing for your signature, but this is really worth supporting: Pell Grants make it possible for over a million students to afford college each year, and cuts in the program would mean that much more of a divide between the opportunities given to the richest and poorest in this country. Go, sign.
