Upcoming Advocacy Week!

From March 22nd-25th, FL NAfME Collegiate is hosting the sixth annual Collegiate Advocacy Week! During this event, we invite collegiates from around the state to learn about current state legislation that impacts music education and speak to elected officials in the Florida Legislator about why they should support music education. All meetings this year will be 100% virtual and we will have a general body meeting on Monday, March 22nd at 7pm to brief everyone on how the week will work and what topics will be covered in the meetings. Meetings will take place over Zoom or similar platforms in groups and most meetings will include an official from NAfME for support. 

 

The most important part of this event is sharing your story of how music education has impacted you, with legislators. Yes, the legislation is important too, but what our elected officials really want to hear is the positive impact music has had on your life and continues to have on the lives of others. It is these stories that ensure music education continues to be supported and funded at the state level.

What is Advocacy for Music Education?

The National Association for Music Education (NAfME) advocates at the federal, state, and local levels to educate elected officials and other key decision makers about the impact and importance of music education programs. Representing music educators, students, and advocates, NAfME is dedicated to ensuring the access, presence, and perseverance of quality music programs operated by certified music educators, for all students across the nation, regardless of circumstance. Through active advocacy and collaboration, we are changing the national conversation about music’s role in delivering an outstanding well-rounded education to all students.
