Explore the Mission Critical role of advocacy at our 2nd annual Advocacy Day! 


This year, AMTESOL's Advocacy Day centers on local, interpersonal moments that have the potential for huge impact. Join us for the series of hands-on, engaging workshops that dive into the conversations and actions that can lead to meaningful change in our classrooms, on our campuses, and around our communities.

We will explore:

  • Who advocates are

  • What advocacy looks like

  • Where and when advocacy happens 

  • Why advocacy is mission critical

  • How advocacy happens

You will finish the day with a stronger sense of yourself as an advocate as well as a toolbox of techniques for advocacy work in various contexts!

A Call for Proposals for the Advocacy Day Lightning Rounds will be announced in October.
