everyday advocacyHey, ALSC members! Weren’t you just saying you’d love to get more involved with Everyday Advocacy but could use a little help digging in?

Well, no worries. We’ve got you covered!

On Tuesday, February 25, the Advocacy & Legislation Committee launches Take Action Tuesday, a weekly day of engagement to help you learn, share, and make a difference for libraries and library services to children in your community.

Each Tuesday, we’ll challenge you and your ALSC colleagues to take simple yet effective action together. You’re already making a splash on your own, but imagine uniting your voice with thousands of others on the same day for the same reason–improving outcomes for the children and families we serve. Now that’s advocacy awesomeness!

So how’s this all going to work?

We’ll update the Everyday Advocacy home page each week with a new Take Action Tuesday challenge. Just look for this graphic to get the weekly scoop:
