Advocacy Working Group

This newly restarted working group will explore the various forms of advocacy of researchers, teachers, community members, families, and students in relation to multilingual learners, educational programs, instructional practices, and policies. The group is very important in today's "post-truth" era. We believe in the power of working together and would like to help our members share their advocacy efforts, as well as expand our reach by providing information on other possible advocacy routes at the local, state and federal levels.
