(This text will be included in your message)
I write to you today to urge you to oppose the upcoming sequestration, and to act on avoiding it by completing budgets for FY13 by Friday, February 28th. As you may know, languages and international education are vital to American competitiveness and national security in the 21st century. These cuts will endanger language teaching and research at all levels of education, in the public sector as well as within the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community.
