Protect Michelle Obama’s ‘Let Girls Learn’ Program

Target: Donald Trump

Goal: Do not discontinue the Let Girls Learn initiative.

The Trump administration plans to discontinue Michelle Obama’s Let Girls Learn program, an education initiative that aims to provide better education opportunities to girls in developing countries. According to a memo from the Trump White House, the Let Girls Learn name will no longer be used, and the program will stop operating immediately.

The program was run by the Peace Corps and the U.S. Agency for International Development. Along with addressing childhood obesity in the United States, the Let Girls Learn initiative was a large part of Michelle Obama’s focus as First Lady. A Peace Corps spokesperson did suggest that effort would continue to be made toward providing education to girls in underdeveloped areas of the world.

The Trump administration provided no explanation as to why this program would be discontinued. Let Girls Learn was doing important work all over the world and providing better educational opportunities to those most in need. Add your name to the petition below to oppose this decision and demand the protection of this program and others like it.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Trump,

Your administration recently announced that it would discontinue the Let Girls Learn program, an education initiative led by First Lady Michelle Obama. This program did important work in furthering educational opportunities for girls in underdeveloped areas all over the world.

The program showed no signs of needing extraordinary funding, and it is not at all uncommon for new presidential administrations to continue such programs from former administrations. Your White House offered little to no explanation as to why Let Girls Learn would immediately cease operations.

I strongly urge you to reconsider this decision and allow Let Girls Learn to continue operating and doing this important work. Access to education is extremely limited for young girls all over the world, and Michelle Obama’s efforts to change that should not be halted by your administration.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
