Change doesn't happen by itself. We need movers and shakers in every community who are in all walks of life to be catalysts for change.
Advocacy seeks to ensure that people, particularly those who cannot speak for themselves, are able to have their voice heard on issues that are important to them. Advocates defend and safeguard their rights and make sure their views and wishes are genuinely considered when decisions are being made about their lives.
Ways you can be an advocate

Write to your local elected representative. Our Legislation Page has resources on how to find your legislators as well as how to plan a meeting with them.
Host a virtual congressional/legislative meetings or virtual round table. NAEYC has put together a timeline and to do list to help coordinate and track these efforts. View it here.
