Advocate for ALP & Literacy
Advocacy is an important part of shaping and changing the world. Taking action does not have to be hard or take a lot of time, but it can be very powerful. Make your voice heard and use it to speak for someone that may not be able to speak for themselves. The best way to insure adults will continue to have access to low-cost literacy classes is if we as a community continue to let the decision makers know it is a priority.
Put what you care passionately about into writing.
It makes a difference!
Ways to Advocate:
- Write a letter - to a decision maker, the newspaper, a friend or family member.
- Help someone you know receive literacy services so that they can tell their story.
- Send an email to your political representatives.
- Invite an ALP representative to talk to a group you belong to.
- Host a dinner at your home and share with your friends and family why supporting
adult literacy is a passion of yours and matters to our community.
