March Community Schools Advocacy Month

 

What?                                                                         

The Coalition for Community Schools along with key partners and allies will co-host a month of advocacy in support of the community schools strategy. This advocacy will target legislators at the local and state levels and will encourage our networks to engage in activities ranging from low to high-touch actions, including tweets, calls, emails, meetings, and site visits.


Who?

The Coalition for Community Schools along with key partners and allies will co-host a month of advocacy in support of the community schools strategy. This advocacy will target legislators at the local and state levels and will encourage our networks to engage in activities ranging from low to high-touch actions, including tweets, calls, emails, meetings, and site visits.

Why?

In 2017, it’s important to maintain the momentum at the state and local levels to raise awareness of the power of community schools for all different kinds of communities and states-whether urban, suburban, or rural.  We’re targeting March as nearly all state legislatures are in session at this time.
 

How?

The Coalition has released an advocacy toolkit to support your actions. This toolkit provides sample language and ideas for different levels of actions. Please let us know what your school/community is doing by emailing Denzel Cummings with the Coalition at cummingsd@iel.org

When?

This advocacy month will occur throughout the entire month of March. We are dedicating the first week of March (1-7) to a Twitter storm and ask all participants to tweet throughout this week using the #CSadvocates hashtag. Sample tweets can be found here. 
 
Thank you in advance for making this advocacy month a success!
