eeAdvocate: An Advocacy Guide for Environmental Education Professionals & Supporters is designed to help you become a better and more confident advocate for environmental education (EE) and bring more support and funding to the field. For EE to reach its full potential, advocacy at all levels of government—local school boards, state legislatures, state and federal agencies, and federal Congressional and Senatorial outreach—is crucial. And no one is more qualified than educators themselves to help decision makers understand the benefits and impacts of EE programs on communities and individuals.

Here you will find some resources to help you name and frame your own issues for deliberation.
