The new year has arrived and ProEnglish is very excited to launch its 2018 campaign!
Congress is back in session this week, and ProEnglish already has begun to schedule several meetings, briefings, and media appearances in order to encourage many more members of the United States House and Senate to support the English Language Unity Act and the RAISE Act.
Right now there are 64 supporters of the English Language Unity Act in the House and 7 supporters in the Senate, and ProEnglish is on Capitol Hill every day seeking to sign up new co-sponsors as quickly as possible.
ProEnglish also plans to hold its second Congressional Briefing in the Rayburn House Office Building soon in order to persuade more members of Congress to support the English Language Unity Act. The first Congressional Briefing last fall was a huge success and now ProEnglish intends to build on that momentum with a second briefing which will target even more members of Congress and their legislative directors and staffs.
ProEnglish also is back at work engaging White House staff in the Trump/Pence administration as we request that President Trump repeal former President Clinton’s onerous Executive Order 13166 as soon as possible. Vice President Pence was a strong and loyal supporter of official English legislation when he was a member of Congress from Indiana, and ProEnglish very much appreciates his support as Vice President as well.
ProEnglish also remains focused on legislation in several states across the nation, as we seek to make English the official language of as many states as possible, and as we also seek to prevent bilingual education in as many states as possible.
As former President Theodore Roosevelt said, “We have but one flag; we must also learn one language, and that language is English.”
2018 is a mid-term election year, and this makes the mission and work of ProEnglish more important than ever.
Please support ProEnglish today as we launch our 2018 campaign and help us engage Congress, the White House, and the legislatures in all 50 states about the urgent need to pass official English legislation as soon as possible!
