Ms. Korber began the Salon with a presentation on how to be an effective advocate in the community and in influencing policy. Participants split into groups to brainstorm what tools would help them become better advocates, and to share what made them successful in past advocacy efforts. The session also reviewed the recently passed Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and how the bipartisan, bicameral legislation can affect adult education nationwide.

Stay tuned for details of the next Salon, and mark your calendar for the upcoming quarterly meeting of the Philadelphia Adult Literacy Alliance on Tuesday, December 2nd from 10:00am – 1:00pm.
