The mission of the CLTA Advocacy Committee is to promote, strengthen, and stand up for language education in California by working with legislators and the public to build and maintain support for language programs across the state. Every CLTA member is an advocate “any time we raise our voices in support of the educators, programs, and policies that promote language learning”. (Language Connects Foundation)

And each voice makes a difference. Let the CLTA Advocacy Committee hear your voice.  For more information about the committee’s work or about how you can be a language advocate, e-mail the Advocacy Chair

CLTA joins California Together to support Language Learners.  Join us by participating in this support to push critical legislation past the finish line and ensure that our education system better serves English learners, dual language learners, and newcomer students. Four bills that Californians Together supported this legislative session are one signature away from becoming law. By taking just a few simple steps, you can send a message to Governor Newsom that you support these bills too.

Contact Governor Newsom and make your voice heard by leaving a message on the Governor’s portal. Click Here to find out how:
