ADVOCACY ACADEMY STATE
In January 2020, ANYTOWN® Advocacy Academy: State will travel to Tallahassee, FL. This leg of Advocacy Academy is open to all 2019 ANYTOWN® graduates and will give them opportunities to meet with legislators and advocacy groups to learn, discuss, and advocate against discrimination in legislative policy.
It is our fundamental belief that youth are not leaders of tomorrow but of today. Advocacy Academy was born of that belief.
Through Advocacy Academy, our youth learn that, even without a vote, their voices can be powerful instruments of change, and our legislators learn that there are inclusive young leaders who will inform them, inspire them, and hold them accountable.
