Once again, funding for Educational Alliance's afterschool program for Fall 2013 is in jeopardy! The mayor is proposing budget cuts for more than 47,000 children across New York City. In order to help stop the cuts and preserve our afterschool programs, we encourage parents to attend town hall meetings and participate in the campaign for children's services in our city. Visit http://www.campaignforchildrennyc.com/ for more information on how you can help.
Our next Town Hall Meeting will take place Thursday April 18, 2013 at 6:00pm at P.S. 134 located in the Lower East Side at 293 East Broadway. Get Directions
Last year our students and parents worked hard to make sure city council and the mayor knew exactly how much afterschool programs mattered to them:
We are thoroughly indebted to Campaign for Children for their tremendous support in the organization and execution of our advocacy campaign.
