Dear The Bronx MoveOn member,
I'm actress and activist Cynthia Nixon, and I started a petition to the New York Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo, which says:
We know pre-K and after-school programs work. Study after study shows that high-quality investments in early education and extended day learning can boost student achievement and success for years afterward.
But today, most children in New York City still don't have access to free full-day, high-quality pre-K, and tens of thousands of middle school students miss out on educational after-school programs.
Universal pre-K is not a new idea. In fact, Albany has been talking about universal pre-K ever since 1997. But the money to make it a reality has never come through.
To expand these programs, we need a steady, predictable source of funding. That's why we need Albany to pass UPKNYC's plan to pay for these critical investments by asking New Yorkers who earn more than $500,000 a year to pay a little bit more in taxes.
Stand with me in telling the New York Legislature to support the plan to fund pre-K and after-school programs today.
This petition was created on MoveOn's online petition site, where anyone can start their own online petitions. Cynthia Nixon didn't pay us to send this email—we never rent or sell the MoveOn.org list.
Want to support our work? MoveOn Civic Action is entirely funded by our 8 million members—no corporate contributions, no big checks from CEOs. And our tiny staff ensures that small contributions go a long way. Chip in here.
