VIP Wins $6 Million in Fight for Books, Schools and Pools in Phoenix

When Valley Interfaith Project leaders learned that there was no additional funding planned for after-school programs in the initial version of the city's budget proposal they pressured Phoenix officials to reinstate services for children and youth.  In response to community pressure, officials voted to restore $6 Million in funding for after-school programs, pools and libraries.
