Use this simple script to advocate for cultural exchange.
Hello, this is (your name). I’m a (your profession OR constituent). I’m calling today to ask (Senator/Congressman/Congresswoman…) to support U.S. Department of States educational and cultural exchange programs. Would you like to take down my address?
Exchange programs (choose 1 or 2 benefits to highlight, for example: support 21st-century learning, support our businesses/schools, prepare Americans to succeed in the global economy, foster mutual understanding). Because of this, I urge (Senator/Congressman/Congresswoman…) to support maintaining funding for State Department exchanges at existing levels and retaining the appropriations special provision that ensures the Exchange Visitor Program will undergo a transparent review process before being changed.
Can you please relay these requests to the (Senator/Congressman/Congresswoman)?
Thank you for your time.
