Welcome to the Advocacy Committee Homepage

The Advocacy Committee works with the Research and Legislative Committees to identify critical issues members are facing.  The Advocacy Committee focuses on collecting, assembling and disseminating information and materials members can use in their local, regional and statewide efforts to advocate for best practices in reading.

WSRA encourages you to become an advocate for reading education by contacting your legislators and letting them know how you feel about bills coming before them. You can find out who your state and federal legislators are by typing in your 9 digit zip code at www.vote-smart.org. If you don't know your nine digit zip code, you can find out what it is by typing your address in the bottom section on the site.  After you enter your zip code, click on FIND. This will take you to a site listing your federal and state legislators. Click on their name and you will be shown how you can contact them.

Information on national literacy advocacy issues can be found at http://www.reading.org/General/Legislative.aspx.
