The New York Immigration Coalition’s (NYIC’s) Education Advocacy Collaborative works to improve the quality of education for New York’s English Language Learner (ELL) and immigrant student population and to ensure that parents have opportunities to meaningfully engage in their children’s education. The Education Advocacy Collaborative comprises more than 20 groups and is multi-ethnic, bringing together leadership from grassroots immigrant organizations representing the diversity of New York’s immigrant communities. Members also include advocates from legal, policy and education organizations, including experts in ELL education. Through the Collaborative’s regular meetings, members discuss issues that ELLs and immigrant students and families are facing and coordinate advocacy to improve outcomes for our students and better engage immigrant parents.
