Please join the public campaign "Speak Up For Geography: The 10,000 Letter Challenge". As a leader in the geospatial industry, your support of geography education in K-12 schools is needed now more than ever. The goal of the 10,000 Letter Challenge is simple: to send 10,000 letters to Congress in support of the bipartisan Teaching Geography is Fundamental (TGIF) Act by November 18, 2011. This date marks the ending of Geography Awareness Week 2011 and the last day of the Congressional session before the Thanksgiving recess. It's easy to send letters to your Members of Congress at http://speakupforgeography.org.
