CTE Action Center

Why Advocate?

CTE professionals are CTE experts, and we need you to join in our work to advocate for CTE. Your local advocacy efforts are a key part of continuing the bipartisan support CTE receives in Congress.

As we head into a reauthorization of the Perkins CTE Act, this "back home" advocacy is especially vital to ensuring your voice is heard on Capitol Hill. Building a relationship with your Members of Congress or their staff will set you up as an expert on CTE and will have policymakers asking for your input when drafting legislation that will impact your classroom.

In addition to the items here on the CTE Action Center, you can find more tips on other advocacy actions you can take in our Advocacy Toolkit.
