On Tuesday, September 25, SHAPE America calls on the health and physical education community to flood social media
with advocacy messages and to send a letter to Congress about the importance of fully funding
 Title IV, Part A of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) for FY19.

Advocate with us

Participate in Online Advocacy Day 2018

September 25, 2018

On Tuesday, September 25, we hope you'll join the health and physical education community by flooding social media with advocacy messages and sending a letter to Congress about
the importance of fully funding Title IV, Part A of theEvery Student Succeeds Act(ESSA) for FY19.

For FY18, Congress significantly increased funding for Title IV, Part A to $1.1 billion — a $700 million increase over the previous year. Engage your members of Congress on the importance of
Title IV, Part A funding so we can retain, and hopefully increase, the funding level for FY19.
