Engaging Graduate Students in Education Research Advocacy

Learn how you can be involved in science policy as a graduate student during the August 2017 congressional recess. In this webinar, AERA staff members and three recent and current graduate students discuss how you can meet with staff members in your local congressional district office to advocate for education research. The graduate students featured in this webinar participated in advocacy training and visits on Capitol Hill as part of the Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering (CASE) workshop convened by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

We have also provided supporting resources including a sample meeting request, a suggested meeting outline, as well as leave behind materials.
