Take Action: Federal Funding for Social-Emotional Learning Needs Your Help! Tell the US Congress to prioritize social-emotional learning (SEL) appropriations for FY2020. The House has passed legislation to significantly fund programs that support SEL. However, the Senate has not passed any education funding—and released a draft spending bill that does not adequately invest in SEL. Please urge your senators and representatives to pass the education funding bill that supports SEL at the funding levels already passed by the House.
