  • Collaborating with allied organizations

  • Facilitating learning opportunities for archivists around advocacy

  • Organizing Day-Of-Service events to benefit organizations in need

Need help with an advocacy issue?

To request assistance from NEA on an advocacy issue related to your organization or the profession at large, please email your request to the Advocacy Point Person (contact information below). Your request should briefly outline the issue at hand, describe the organization(s) impacted, and offer some suggestions for how NEA can help. Once your request is received, the Advocacy Point Person will forward the request to the NEA board for discussion, at which point the board will decide what, if any, action will be taken. The Advocacy Point Person will follow up with the requester with information about the board’s decision.

Send requests and any questions you have to the Advocacy Point Person:  Jessica Sedgwick, Representative-at-large, jmsedg@gmail.com
