For 2021, MCAN's Advocacy Day was adapted from a single day event to a week of virtual advocacy activities — Monday, May 17 through Friday, May 21 — that allowed participants an opportunity to rally around postsecondary access and attainment in support of Sixty by 30.

Throughout the week, college access stakeholders were briefed about the latest issues and barriers affecting access and attainment, heard from legislators and government officials, and met with their state representatives and senators virtually to discuss these issues.

This annual event is open to everyone who has a passion for college access and postsecondary attainment. In the past, attendees have included high school counselors, local college access network coordinators, higher education professionals, community-based organization leaders and staff, philanthropy leaders, and more. All are welcome to attend. No previous advocacy knowledge or skill set is required.

Advocacy Week registration is now closed, but if you have event questions or would like to support MCAN's advocacy efforts in other ways, please contact Jordan Baah-Sackey, strategy assistant for Service Strategy.
