Sign the “Restore Our Funding” petition to send a clear message to your U.S. Congressman and Senators to restore funding for hunter education, archery and shooting sports programs in our nation’s schools.
In late July, news broke that Joe Biden’s Department of Education is interpreting the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act (BSCA), passed in 2022, to cancel funding to schools for hunter education, archery, and the shooting sports.
This interpretation was not shared by the sponsors of the BSCA, including a bipartisan group of Representatives and Senators who have publicly denounced the agency’s decision.
On August 11, the Sportsmen’s Alliance filed our intent to sue the Department of Education to have this funding restored, but while we wait for the agency to respond to our demand, every sportsman must reach out to their elected officials to pass a permanent fix to terminate this defunding effort.
Congress needs to hear from as many sportsmen as possible so that they immediately right this wrong. The Sportsmen’s Alliance will continue to ensure that our national voice is heard loud and clear on this issue.
America’s children depend on these school programs to learn responsibility, ethics, and our outdoor traditions and heritage. This funding must be restored! Sign the petition today!
