NAFSA Advocacy Day


March 19-20, 2018
Washington, D.C.

At NAFSA's 2018 Advocacy Day, speak out for students, scholars, and policies that matter to you! After a day of training and strategizing, you will head to Capitol Hill with all the tools you need to educate Congress on how international education impacts your state and district and why we need a more globally engaged and welcoming United States. Personal meetings will be scheduled for you with your elected officials and their staff in both the Senate and House of Representatives. Requests for refunds will be accepted through February 20. Registration for Advocacy Day closed on March 9.

About Your Meetings

We aim to schedule three meetings for each participant (two with each of your Senate offices and one with your Representative’s office in the House). You will attend these meetings with other participants from your state and congressional district. Please note that NAFSA cannot guarantee three meetings for participants who register on or after March 1, 2018. Your meetings on Capitol Hill will be scheduled according to your home voting address and not that of your institution. All Advocacy Day attendees are encouraged to attend as private citizens.
