ADVOCACY

About Our Advocacy Actions

During this event, JNCL-NCLIS official delegates and members will attend advocacy trainings and meet with federal legislators on Capitol Hill to garner support for and advance one piece of language education legislation. While you're on Capitol Hill for Advocacy Action Day, we also invite you to attend the America’s Languages Caucus briefing to address pressing issues in the field today organized by JNCL-NCLIS and hosted by Congressman Jimmy Panetta (D-CA).

NETWORKING

About Our Networking Reception

Networking
