Reach out to policymakers at the local, state, and federal levels using the Community Schools Advocacy Toolkit

The toolkit will help you answer and develop strategies for the following questions:

What do you want to happen as a result of meeting with your legislator?
Which issues are important to your legislator?
Which issues do you most care about, and most heavily impact your mission and the population that you serve?
