Hello NCL colleagues,

As Congress continues to negotiate two major spending packages
(infrastructure and the budget reconciliation), it's urgent that we push
policymakers to invest in adult education and workforce development. If
your organization has not already done so, we'd love you to sign on to
this letter by August 19

Dear Caroline,

Investments in skills training and workforce development are critical to an
inclusive economic recovery. The businesses and workers most impacted by
the pandemic – women, people of color, immigrants, and their families –
need Congress to invest in training and supports that are essential
components of any job creation efforts.

Tell Congress to invest in workforce development now!

President Biden proposed $100 billion for workforce development in his
American Jobs Plan. *But workforce investments are at risk of being
negotiated away by Congress. *If we slash that $100 billion down, we won’t
be able to respond to the pandemic and the decade of digital and
technological change that happened in just the last year.

We can’t let $100B investments in skills training be negotiated away. Add
your organization to this letter by August 19th telling Congress we need
these investments in workforce.
