Virtual Networking 3: “Finding Your Voice, How You Can Help Save Funding For Adult Ed!”

Date: Friday, June 5, 2020
Time: 9:15 – 11:00 am EST
PAACE members, we are ALL living in a crucial time. We need all hands on deck to fight for funding during this uncertain time.
During this networking meeting, we will learn how we can all have an impact on the funding in the field. The Advocacy & Public Policy Chair, Cheryl Hiester, will be leading our discussion during the first part of the meeting. She will help us understand our role in this endeavor. All of us, from administrators to teachers and tutors to students have a momentous opportunity to band together and make a real and lasting difference.
When we enter our division break out rooms, we will talk about ways we can help our students advocate for our field. Many of our students are working in minimum wage jobs on the front lines: delivering food, stocking shelves at the local store, nurse’s aides, … and many people who have been furloughed or laid-off from their current jobs may not have the education to get a different job if their job has been permanently lost may not have the education to gain other employment.
Now is the time for all of us to do something that will matter!!!
