Special Education Legislative Summit
2020 Overview

This July, hundreds of special education advocates from across the country will fill the halls of Congress to let their Senators and Representatives know what children and youth with exceptionalities need to succeed. At the 2020 Special Education Legislative Summit, we’ll prepare you to advocate in a meaningful way, connect you with other advocates from your state, and guide you to make appointments. Once you are on Capitol Hill, you will have the opportunity to speak with members of Congress and their staff.

At this year’s Summit, national policy and education experts will provide you with:

  • Briefings and insider perspectives that explain the critical issues facing special and gifted education and early intervention
  • Coaching and practice sessions on delivering effective and compelling advocacy messages
  • Strategies to share legislative asks and your students’ success stories with your members of Congress
