The Chronicle: Lee Sherman on the Administration’s Proposal to Reorganize the Federal Government

August 16, 2018

Yesterday, an opinion piece authored by CEO Lee Sherman was published in The Chronicle of Philanthropy, presenting a strong argument against parts of the Administration’s proposal to reorganize the government that would have a significant impact on the human service sector. Here is a short excerpt from the article:

“Human services affect all of us collectively, both directly and indirectly, over the span of our lives. When we support well-being, we ensure that all people can reach their potential and contribute to our communities, making them vibrant, thriving places to live, work, and play. The administration’s plan to reorganize the federal government would undermine this work and undermine support for work that improves the lives of people in every community across America. Congress should not approve the administration’s proposals to reorganize the executive branch.

Instead, lawmakers should consult with human-service experts — the government and nonprofit professionals who do the work every day — about how best to deliver federally supported services in our communities.”

The full article can be accessed on The Chronicle of Philanthropy site.  Additionally, the National Assembly has previously commented on the proposal at its release in late June, and it was the focus of a Reframing Network Newsletter soon after.
