Event Description

Let Your Instincts Guide You to a Successful Advocacy Plan

Advocacy, by definition, means to show support for a cause. What better cause is there than our children’s education? Now, more than ever, educators are inspired to participate in meaningful advocacy for themselves and their students. The challenge is that many educators don’t know where to start when beginning to plan meaningful advocacy work.

In this webinar, Jorge Valenzuela will share insights to help school administrators and educators understand the important issues in all matters of advocacy. Understanding the needs of students, collaborating with colleagues and learning the inner workings of state legislature are essential to forming an effective advocacy plan.

After attending this audio event, you will have the tools necessary to begin advocacy work that will help your profession grow by developing new educational leaders and providing students with the relevant learning experiences they deserve.

Advocate Karen Deitemeyer says: “Advocating for what you believe in is crucial—if you don’t ask for it, people assume you don’t need it!” Learn how to ask on behalf of your students to ensure they have all the resources necessary for success.
