Local Advocacy Week and Higher Education Action Day!
Using our newly adopted advocacy agenda, the Student Assembly launched its second annual in-district student advocacy week from November 18th-22nd, 2019. During this week, students took meetings with state legislators to discuss both the issues that affect students directly and the importance of passing critical higher education legislation.
In one week, the Student Assembly successfully organized and facilitated meetings with 18 legislators involving 29 students representing 12 campuses.
In addition to this incredibly impactful week of advocacy, students and members of the Student Assembly’s Executive Committee continue to take dozens of meetings with lawmakers, reaching districts that represent hundreds of thousands of SUNY students.
