“When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.” – Audre Lorde
Do you ever feel like the lone voice for English learners and multilingual learners in your school or district?
You are not alone.
Californians Together invites mid-career professionals to apply to the 2024 English Learner Advocacy Institute, an extraordinary, four-day professional development event for selected education leaders and advocates for quality education for multilingual learners. This is a fully-funded event (materials, meals, lodging), with support available as needed for transportation.
The institute will be based on design and materials developed for the English Learner Leadership and Legacy Initiative (ELLLI) including the case studies outlined in A Legacy of Courage and Activism: Stories from the Movement Toward Educational Equity and Access for English Learners in California by Dr. Laurie Olsen.
Those who complete the four days will become part of an expanding community of ELLLI advocates, including over 260 professionals and veteran EL advocates working to impact local and state-wide policy and practice in fostering quality education for multilingual learners in California.
