"Connecting Our World" - NAFSA's New Grassroots Advocacy Effort

Next Monday (May 24th) NAFSA: Association of International Educators will launch a new website for their grassroots advocacy efforts called “Connecting Our World.”  According to an e-mail sent to me (and everyone else who has taken action on an international education related policy issue through NAFSA’s ACT) by Kari Lantos (Manager of Grassroots Outreach at NAFSA):

Connecting Our World will make it easier than ever for you to directly support grassroots advocacy initiatives, share your passion for international education with others, and participate in ongoing conversations about the advocacy topics in international education that matter most to you. Connecting Our World is designed to build on the success of your grassroots efforts and, with your help, attract an even broader global community of advocates to NAFSA's efforts to support international education.

As the new destination for all aspects of our grassroots advocacy efforts, Connecting Our World will replace what you currently know as ACT (the Advocacy-Centered Team). Beginning on Monday, "ACT" will become "Connecting Our World."

I'll post briefly about the new website next week!

  1. Make sure you check out the Advocacy Session in KC on Thursday at 2pm that will demonstrate this new site but tons of other cool social media tools. Thanks, Mandy
