This post is part of our week-long series on higher education affordability and accessibility. Check back each day for a new post!
Unfortunately, not all of our members will be able to join us for our Congressional Briefing and Day of Action on Thursday. Earlier this week, NCTC Public Policy & Research Director Sean Noble took some time to explain what our Policy and Advocacy team will be doing this week by answering three simple questions:
- What’s the Congressional Briefing and Day of Action all about?
- What will advocates be doing on Capitol Hill?
- Why is college access so important?
Take a few minutes to listen to Sean explain the importance of higher education access and our field’s advocacy work as a whole. And remember – you may not be in Washington, DC, but there are plenty of ways you can get involved from home!
