Capital Hill Days are here!

COABE is holding its annual Capitol Hill Days from March 24 to April 6, 2021—this year taking place virtually and extended to two weeks to ensure all adult education advocates can make their voices heard virtually on Capitol Hill. Policymakers are making critical decisions right now about emergency funding for adult education programs due to the pandemic, and for longer-term appropriations funding. We must let Members of Congress know that our adult educators and our adult learners are among the most vulnerable workers, and they are in dire need of additional support!

We encourage you to view a “How To” video at to learn how to make appointments with legislators and engage in Virtual Capitol Hill Days. For more guidance including how to contact your legislator, how to have a successful meeting, logging your appointments, and completing the feedback form, please review the resource entitled “COABE on the Hill Master Guide” at the same website.

Our IAACE Executive Director Jenn Wigginton, as a COABE State Advocacy Fellow, will participate in Capitol Hill Days, and we encourage all of our members and students to do the same.  What a great civics lesson it could be!

Rob Moore
IAACE Advocacy Chair
