Adult Education Forum on Capitol Hill’s Covid-19 response

January 1, 1970 @ 12:00 am PST

Things are changing fast on Capitol Hill. In March, Congress passed a major $2 trillion Covid relief package in March known as the CARES Act. Next, the House passed an even bigger bill, known as the HEROES Act — but the Senate is working on their own bills and timeline. What does all this mean for adult education? How can adult educators weigh in with federal policymakers and their states to advocate for dedicated funding? How does adult educators’ expertise in digital literacy and online learning fit into these conversations? Join us for a frank conversation with federal policy experts about what’s happening in Washington and how YOU can take action. Bring your stories and your questions!

– Amanda Bergson-Shilcock, Senior Fellow, National Skills Coalition

– Deborah Kennedy, President, National Coalition for Literacy

– Katie Spiker, Director of Government Affairs, National Skills Coalition
