The Campaign to Invest in America’s Workforce takes joint positions and conducts joint advocacy on federal budget and appropriations issues across a range of skills programs determined by the priorities of participating organizations. We provide a venue through which member organizations can share information about federal policies on which they are working, in order to raise awareness across the broader skills community and enlist support beyond a group’s usual constituency. And, while the Campaign does not take positions on reform or authorization issues, it provides a venue through which individual groups can work on specific joint policy positions on an “opt-in” basis.
The Campaign to Invest in America’s Workforce promotes joint action across our member networks, using common messages and materials in an effort to amplify the voice of our field. In 2011, we organized a national Workforce Day of Action (March 24, 2011) and a national Workforce Week of Action (August 15-19, 2011) calling on individuals and organizations across the country to stand up for investments in America’s workers and industries.

The Campaign to Invest in America’s Workforce will occasionally host briefings to educate lawmakers and their staff on key issues relating to federal funding for job training and education, and provide opportunities for our state and local partners to share their expertise on how workforce policies impact workers and businesses in our nation’s communities.
