WHAT IS LANGUAGE ADVOCACY DAY?

Organized annually by the Joint National Committee for Languages (JNCL), LAD is a networking and Hill Visit that hosts 150+ advocates from all over the United States concerned about language learning. LAD connects you to federal policymakers in Washington, DC. JNCL's mission is to set you up for success: we schedule 100+ of Capitol Hill meetings , prepare briefing materials for you and the Capitol Hill staff to discuss, and provide coaching and insights for navigating Congress.

WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?

If we don't tell our story, who will? Advocates keep coming back each year to establish personal relationships with policymakers. Our representatives need to know, as one attendee put it, that "language learning is not simply an elective." It is critical for job growth in 21st century economy, national security, and social justice.

WHO CAN ATTEND?

JNCL encourages all to participate in our democratic process: language teachers and administrators at any point in their career, and new or veteran advocates of the Hill. Our goal is FULL REPRESENTATION from all states 50 states to paint a complete picture of the importance of language education in the 21st century.
