How do you create change?

create-changeOEA members are accustomed to advocating for work condition issues, but how do we advocate for professional issues that affect you and your students such as the Third Grade Guarantee?

Advocacy efforts come in all sizes and shapes. Advocacy can begin with a conversation, an editorial, an event, a call, a letter, a song … and the list goes on!

OEA encourages you to share your experiences and efforts to create change in policy, procedure and law.

What have you and your peers done at the building, district, state and national level to advocate for necessary changes in professional issues? What have you found effective or ineffective? Who or what has been your inspiration and motivation?

Post your ideas, examples and feedback in the comments below and let’s start a conversation about advocacy!
