What does it take to be an ABE leader?

Leadership can sometimes be a complicated art, sometimes it’s a simple act.

MCAE is asking you to be a leader - by joining us and by combining your voice with ours on behalf of adult educators and students here in Massachusetts.  For more than two decades, in collaboration with ABE leaders across the Commonwealth, MCAE has sought to promote public policies that provide the resources necessary to deliver high-quality educational services, that improve working conditions for program staff, and that enhance the quality of life for adult learners and their families.

Our work can only continue with your support, however. So, please, join MCAE and the organizations listed below by clicking here now.

Help Protect Immigrant Families

The Trump Administration recently proposed changes in federal regulations - often referred to as the "public charge" rule - that would put millions of people across the country at risk, deterring immigrants from accessing essential health, nutrition, and housing benefits and dramatically skewing America’s immigration system against working families To learn more about the proposed changes and the threat they pose, please visit the Protecting Immigrant Families website by clicking here.

You can help to stop these proposed changes by submitting comments on the impact they would have on your family, your neighbors, and your community.  Just click here to access an incredibly helpful online form for submitting comments that the MIRA Coalition, the Massachusetts Law Reform Institute, and their partners have developed.

Don’t delay!  The deadline to make your voice heard on this critical issue is Monday, December 10.
