Advocacy SIG

The Advocacy Special Interest Group brings together educators who want to learn about and get support for advocacy at local, state, and federal levels to advocate for English Learners (ELs), their families, their teachers, and the field of TESOL & Bilingual education.


Meetings are open to current MATSOL Members at no charge. 


The Advocacy SIG E-List is open to current MATSOL members. Members will be automatically subscribed to the E-list when they choose the Advocacy SIG in registration. If you'd like to join this E-list manually, please read instructions for subscribing to an E-List.


The Advocacy SIG will meet on these Mondays in Spring 2023:

  • Jan 17 (Tuesday because of MLK day)
  • March 6
