ADVOCACY AND PUBLIC POLICY


In the Fall of 2018, the Foundation for Tacoma Students — the backbone 501c3 nonprofit supporting the Graduate Tacoma community movement —launched its first advocacy agenda in favor of policy that works for all Tacoma students to increase graduation rates and close disparity gaps.

The Graduate Tacoma Advocacy Network launched the following year to develop an annual cradle-to-career shared policy agenda. The network of community leaders and program providers is dedicated to elevating the power and voice of the Graduate Tacoma community movement to affect equitable outcomes at the systems-change level.
