Objectives: AALPD will strengthen ongoing advocacy efforts by:
Establishing a strong public policy advocacy working group committed to informing and driving the AALPD advocacy process;
Developing authorizations, budget and appropriations advocacy messages, based upon the AALPD PD Policy Recommendations, and submitting those messages to the National Coalition for Literacy (NCL) for inclusion in the field's messages;
Advocating for professional development messages at the federal, state, and local levels; and
Developing advocacy resources (not already existing) to support efforts of others in advocating for funding for professional development.
