Educate and Elevate: A Model for Civic Engagement and Impact

October 1, 2020

The Educate and Elevate public awareness campaign developed by the Coalition on Adult Basic Education (COABE) has connected thousands of adult educators and students with decision makers to advocate for adult education programs, many for the first time. This session will highlight the tools and best practices of the customizable web-based Educate and Elevate platform that was instrumental in uniting the adult education field to help stave off more than $200 million in funding cuts. The session will also briefly highlight the many benefits of membership and provide a high level overview of the initiatives of the organization.
