Multilingual Learner Advocacy Month: Community Advocacy for Multilingual Learners
Multilingual learners bring tremendous cultural and linguistic assets to their schools. They also have a community rooting and advocating for their academic success and overall well-being. When state agencies, districts, and schools take into account those assets and partner with the folks championing multilingual learners, including students and caregivers, the education system can shift outcomes and move towards a quality education for these learners.

Join TNTP’s policy and advocacy team as we engage in conversation with leaders from organizations directly serving multilingual learners, their families, and those who support them. In this panel discussion, you’ll learn how students and families are advocating for themselves, what they’re advocating for, and walk away with strategies and ideas for how to position multilingual learners and their families as strategic partners in education.

Featured Speakers:
Elizabeth Xiomara Campos Hamilton, Vice President, Family Resource Center on Disabilities
Danny Hernandez, Community Impact & Learning Specialist, All In Education
Nancie Adolphe, Program Director, Flanbwayan Haitian Literacy Project
Moderated by TNTP’s Amani Thomas, Senior Manager of Policy and Advocacy
