Advocacy Day

Speak out for students, scholars, and policies that matter to you! Educate Congress on how international education impacts your state and district and why we need a more globally engaged and welcoming United States. Registration for NAFSA's 2020 Advocacy Day will open in October.

Action Alert: Educate Congress on the Value of International Students

As part of our Welcome to Succeed campaign, educate your Senators and Representative about the dollars, jobs, academic and cultural benefits international students bring to your state. Share your stories about the positive impact international students have on our communities. Use our advocacy toolkit to request your member of Congress make a public floor statement in support of international students.

Action Alert: Pass the Dream Act

Urge your Senators and Representative to move legislation forward that will provide permanent protection for Dreamers. These young people are American in every way other than on paper. The United States is the only home they have ever known. We need an immigration system that allows these young people to continue their studies, enter the workforce, and continue to give back to our communities.

Support Study AbroadAction Alert: Urge Congress to Support Study Abroad

Urge your Senators to cosponsor the bipartisan Senator Paul Simon Study Abroad Program Act or thank those that have already cosponsored. Take a minute to personalize the letter provided and explain why you support this bill, allowing more American students to get the global skills they need to succeed.
