Advocacy Action Day
Happy National School Psychology Week and Advocacy Action Day! Your advocacy today is more critical than ever, as we prepare for next year's Congress and state legislative sessions. These actions can make a difference - and they shouldn't take more than five minutes of your time.
Here's what we're asking you to do today:
- Use this link to send an advocacy letter to your federal representatives.
- Use this link to send an advocacy letter to your state representatives.
- Post a message to your social media accounts, reinforcing the message of protecting and expanding school psychological services. Don't forget to tag your representatives, and use the hashtags #NASPadvocates and #SchoolPyschWeek. Sample social media can be found here.
- Connect with your school board to see how you can advocate at the local level. Some ideas: subscribe to email newsletters/notifications of meeting agendas and announcements; send an email advocating for school mental health to your representatives; and join local education social media groups. Use our resource guide to advocate for school psychologist positions for additional ideas.
Thanks for all that you do to support children and families!
