No matter your age or experience, if you’re a young person who cares about an issue in your community, this advocacy guide is for you.

Maybe you’ve never done advocacy before. Maybe you’ve never seen anyone who looks like you speak up where you live. That means it’s even more important to get involved. If something feels wrong to you, chances are others feel the same way. And, if another student sees you speak up, they might do the same. You might feel alone—at first—but you won’t be advocating alone. You have friends, family, your teachers.

Most importantly: You are an expert. You’re an expert on what it’s like to be a student in your community, on what’s working well in your education, and what isn’t. That’s all the expertise you need. This guide is designed to help you use that expertise to make change.
