You’re Invited to AACTE’s 2020 Washington Week

Ann Larson

As chair of the AACTE Board of Directors, I would like to personally invite you to AACTE’s inaugural, virtual Washington Week. This year’s conference will take place throughout the month of September and will provide ample opportunity to engage with colleagues and advocate for educator preparation. 

During these challenging times, it is imperative for congressional leaders to hear our voice about the support, funding, and policies needed to advance the work at our institutions and to move the profession forward. Your voice matters and is critical to AACTE’s advocacy efforts. 

AACTE has designed Washington Week to cover current issues and trends impacting our classrooms, our society, and our world. Lively discussions will address important topics such as:

  • Holmes Advanced Policy Course, September 2-3, and Holmes Policy Institute, September 8-10, will highlight civil rights, social justice, and equity in education. Learn more.
  • Day on the Hill, September 9-10 and 15-16, will offer the latest advocacy strategies in virtual settings. Learn more.
  • State Leaders Institute, September 22-23, will focus on how to combat racism in education. Learn more.

Your participation is more important now than ever before. Join our community in advocating for educator preparation. Watch the video to learn more about the virtual conference. Register now and invite your colleagues and students to participate in AACTE’s 2020 Washington Week. View the event schedule and details at www.aacte.org. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook, and join the conversation using #AACTEWW20.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact AACTE’s Events Team at events@aacte.org

I look forward to seeing you at AACTE’s inaugural virtual event next month!
