About this event

Afterschool Advocacy Week 2022: February 1 - February 4, 2022

We are pleased to invite you to join us in our virtual 2022 Afterschool Advocacy Week! Join participants, parents, program providers, and other supporters of afterschool, summer, and expanded learning programs to advocate for New York’s children and families. COVID-19 impacted children and families particularly hard, with many students experiencing learning loss along with threats to their social, emotional, and mental health. Expanded learning programs are supporting students and families in their recovery from these significant challenges. Join the Network to educate and share with legislators why afterschool programs are important to you!

We will host the following events during the week:

  • Afterschool Call-in/Email (Wednesday, February 2, 2022) to reach out to representatives about the importance of afterschool, summer, and expanded learning opportunities and increase visibility of our advocacy efforts. This event will happen between 11am-12pm ET.
  • Afterschool Tweetstorm (Thursday, February 3, 2022) a coordinated outreach to legislators via Twitter by supporters of afterschool. This will take place between 11am-12pm ET.
  • Afterschool Legislative Meetings (Tuesday-Friday, February 1-4, 2022), meetings with legislative offices to express the importance of supporting and funding afterschool programs. Meeting times, TBD.

In addition to Afterschool Advocacy Week 2022, you can also register to participate in the State of Afterschool update calls (Monthly, beginning January 26 and ending April 20), Regional afterschool forums (March 9, 2022), and the Spring for Afterschool Campaign (Week of March 9, date and time TBD).

Registration closes on January 21, 2022
