2018 NAFSA Advocacy Day

March 19-20, 2018
Each year, NAFSA convenes a 2-day event in Washington DC called Advocacy Day. The event provides international educators from across the country with training, preparation and arranged visits to Capitol Hill.  Preparation provides tools for educating Congressional members on how international education impacts your state/territory and why we need a more globally engaged and welcoming United States. NAFSA will schedule personal meetings for you with your elected officials and their staff in both the Senate and House of Representatives. This is an exciting and powerful way for international educators to be heard!
