You are invited to join forces with LAPCAE to meet with our legislators in the rotunda of the capitol on May 29, 2018.
The goal of this event is not to directly request funds or even to request that adult education funding not be cut.
Our purpose is to put a face on adult education. We want to share student stories and explain how adult education is a social good. Students who participate in our programs do more than just get their HSE. Adult education reduces recidivism. Adult education increases job opportunities and creates skilled workers. Adult education helps people become better parents. Adult education provides transitional services to college, especially for non-traditional students.
Adult education is valuable.
Adult education is necessary.
Adult education is a net gain for LA.
We will be setting up multiple tables to showcase a variety of student profiles. We will talk to everyone about adult education. We want to inform the legislators about the wide range of the students we serve and by extension the wide range of positive impacts that adult education has on Louisiana. If you or any member of your staff would like to meet us in Baton Rouge, we would love it!
We will begin setting up our tables at 8:00 am. The legislators usually convene for votes around 3 or 4 in the afternoon. We will break down our tables when they convene.
If you are interested in taking part, please complete the linked form for yourself and each member of your staff who is likely to attend.
Unfortunately, LAPCAE will not be able to reimburse your travel or lodging expenses.
