At NAFSA's Advocacy Day, speak out for students, scholars, and policies that matter to you! Though the format will be 100 percent virtual, your voice will be no less powerful. A combination of pre-recorded materials, live online training, and strategizing with policy experts and your peers will give you the tools you need to educate Congress on how policy change would create a more globally engaged and welcoming United States.

The March event will be entirely virtual and held over the course of two days. March 7 will feature a half-day of training on the issues with our policy experts followed by practice sessions with your peers to rehearse the congressional meetings. March 13 will be devoted to the virtual meetings. We ask all participants to block off the entire day. 

Personal meetings will be scheduled for you with one of your elected officials or their staff. At least one other meeting will be added to your schedule to round out your experience.
