The theme of Advocacy Day 2015 was Gender Equality: a Call to Action!
Our goal was to inspire and prepare our students to grapple with the universal need to work to challenge sexism
using legislative advocacy, social activism, and social and organizational change.
In addition to sensitizing the students, we invited leaders to teach students about grassroots social change techniques
including how to influence the political process and successfully organize community and union efforts.
