Save Pell Day
Monday July 25, 2011
On July 25, supporters across the country will band together for Save Pell Day -- an online day of action to engage via blogs, Twitter, Facebook and other online tools as we raise our voices in opposition to Pell funding cuts.
Save Pell Day aims to:
-Tweet at lawmakers using the #SavePell hashtag to demand they fund the $5,550 maximum Pell Grant and that they not make harmful cuts to the program’s eligibility requirements
-Send e-mails to elected officials telling Congress and the White House that we cannot balance the federal budget on the backs of our most vulnerable Americans
-Share information on blogs, Facebook and Tumblr to let more people know that these potential cuts could derail the dreams of thousands of students trying to earn their way into the middle class
