You’re already an expert in what you do, and sharing your expertise can make a difference in legislation.
How can educators become public policy advocates? Just think: you educate and motivate students every day. That’s what advocacy is: educating and motivating lawmakers.
Get involved in advocating for infants, toddlers, children, and youth with exceptionalities, and the professionals who support them:
- Check out our Educate. Motivate. Advocate videos, where CEC’s Senior Policy & Advocacy Advisor will get you started on the basics of advocacy.
- Make sure you've checked the Policy Insider newsletter box in your email subscription preferences and get relevant policy information in your inbox every Friday.
- Contact your elected officials through the Legislative Action Center.
- Discover what you can do at the Special Education Legislative Summit in July.
You educate. You motivate. Now, you can advocate.
