NAFSA Advocacy Day

March 19-20, 2018
Washington, D.C.

At NAFSA's 2018 Advocacy Day, speak out for students, scholars, and policies that matter to you! After a day of training and strategizing, you will head to Capitol Hill with all the tools you need to educate Congress on how international education impacts your state and district and why we need a more globally engaged and welcoming United States. Personal meetings will be scheduled for you with your elected officials and their staff in both the Senate and House of Representatives.
