TESOL Advocacy Action Days

Our annual TESOL Advocacy & Public Policy Summit is transforming into TESOL Advocacy Action Days! For 2024, we have two opportunities to take your voice to the Hill! On 1 May, join us for virtual Hill visits and learn about the current issues and legislation that matter most to you and your learners. Then on 23 July, join us for in-person Hill visits in Washington, D.C., to raise your voice on Capitol Hill and speak directly to your congressional representatives to advocate for change.

Make Contact

Advocacy Action Center

The action center is a free resource for all advocates, U.S. TESOL members and non-members alike, to find and contact their members of the United States Congress and state legislatures. Most importantly advocates can answer action alerts from TESOL to contact their members of Congress on important issues TESOL is tracking.
