Frequently Asked Questions

What is Legislative Advocacy Day?
Each year NYSACAC members are encouraged to meet with their legislators in Albany to advocate for student aid, resources for college counseling, and legislation that will lower barriers to college access and success for students across the state.

This year we will be running a Virtual Advocacy Day for students, families, and staff.

What do I have to do?
This year we will be creating a few different opportunities for Virtual Engagement:

Submit individual and/or School Video Testimonials
Attend Virtual Panels with Legislators
Attend Virtual Zoom Meetings with your State Legislators
Stay tuned for more registration information coming in January. Once you complete the registration form we’ll be able to identify your legislators and group you with colleagues from your area. We’ll then reach out to legislative offices to schedule appointments for your group. All you need to do is show up virtually and speak up!


Do I need advocacy experience?
No! You do not need to have any experience in advocacy work. The NYSACAC Government Relations Committee will set up all of your appointments for the day and place you in a group of colleagues, some of whom will have advocacy experience to share. We will also provide a recorded Webinar Training (review the 2020 Presentation) the week prior to Legislative Advocacy Day.

Can I bring students?
Absolutely! Advocacy Day is a wonderful opportunity for your students to get involved and make their voices heard. 
The NYSACAC Government Relations Committee will plan meetings for you and your students with state legislators, empowering them to affect change in their communities and their futures.
