Our June Toolkit focuses on Pride Month, Autistic Pride Day, providing support resources, statistics, and information for inclusive summer activities; additionally, we’ll continue emphasizing COVID-19 education and general COVID-19 support. Our policy resources review President Biden’s American Rescue Plan, an action alert for National Training for Police and Mental Health Crisis Support bills, and details about schools reopening from the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.
Please use this action alert to urge your Representatives and Senators to co-sponsor the National Training for Police and Mental Health Crisis Support bills.
On March 11, 2021, President Joe Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act into law. Check out this State Advocacy Toolkit to advocate for COVID-19 funding for target programs.
