CCLC advocates for adult education services and clients, including organizing rallies and meeting with elected officials.

National advocacy

The Commission on Adult Basic Education (COABE), the National Council of State Directors of Adult Education (NCSDAE), and the National Adult Education Professional Development Consortium have launched a campaign to raise awareness about Adult Education. The Educate & Elevate campaign aims to inform elected officials, policy makers, and funders about the impact that this field has on students, businesses, and our workforce. The campaign website features a campaign tool-kit and adult learner success stories. Click here to learn more.
