2019 Summer Advocacy Challenge

July 16, 2019

It’s time to show our strength! Over the next several weeks, Members of Congress will be back in their home States and Districts meeting with local constituents. COE is challenging all TRIO personnel, students, parents, alumni, and other supporters to make their voices heard by hosting participating in many local visits with Representatives and Senators as possible between now and September 1! To help accomplish this goal, COE has created the 2019 Summer Recess Packet Document is available for download (.pdf), which includes a list of local congressional events, examples of successful advocacy, and other tips to help make a congressional visit a success! Be sure to let COE’s Government Relations team know about your efforts so they can highlight your work!
