Legislative sessions may only happen every other year, but building a culture of legislative advocacy is year-in, year-out work. Everyone in a district has a role to play. This session will explore how to equip teachers, students, parents, staff, and administrators to be effective advocates and offer insights for deepening policy knowledge, building political awareness, and creating a hospitable environment for advocacy.
