Speak Up Goes to Washington, DC

Speak Up Congressional Briefing 2020 – Virtual Event for All to Participate!

Each year since 2004, Project Tomorrow has hosted a Congressional Briefing in Washington DC to share the national findings from our research. We bring the voices of K-12 students, parents, educators and community members to Capitol Hill to be sure our policymakers are hearing directly from those most impacted by national education policy. The event includes the release of our national Speak Up report.

This year’s Congressional Briefing was a bit different! The COVID19 pandemic has provided us with the impetus to open up this event to be more inclusive. For the first time, our Speak Up Congressional Briefing was 100% virtual and allowed everyone who cares about K-12 education participate from all around the county and the world.

In addition to sharing the research findings, the highlight of every Speak Up Congressional Briefing is the panel of students who tell their own stories about the role of digital tools, content and resources within their learning lives. Those insights were more important this year than ever due to the sudden shift to digital learning in spring 2020. The 2020 virtual panel of students will included students from cities and towns across America.
