The Public Policy Committee strategizes and implements an annual advocacy campaign to promote adult basic education services as well as increased funding to expand capacity and strengthen adult basic education services.

The annual advocacy campaign includes:

  • Establishing and cultivating ongoing communication with legislators regarding the importance of adult basic education to individual adults, the community and the Commonwealth
  • Informing and mobilizing advocates via MCAE Alerts sent electronically
  • Providing training for advocates, which includes staff, volunteers and students
  • Incorporating civic engagement and public policy issues into the adult basic education curriculum

MCAE also supports the budget and policy priorities of its allies that affect the adult basic education community.
