Federal Advocacy

The Education Trust staff are advocates and thought partners for Congressional staff, executive agency staff, and stakeholders from the education, civil rights, disability, and business communities in order to achieve and implement federal policies that advance educational equity for students of color and students from low-income backgrounds. We use policy analysis, messaging, and legislative and regulatory strategic thought to educate, engage, and build demand for Ed Trust’s equity agenda amongst, and alongside, federal policymakers and diverse coalitions of advocates.
