Music educators witness the needs of our students firsthand; yet often, we don’t feel fully equipped to advocate for our students effectively. Join music educator turned advocate, Jazzmone, and other music education advocates to hear their stories and reflections on how to make advocacy actionable for the music education advocate. We can’t promise that we have all the answers, but we can learn from each other and grow together.

Join host Jazzmone Sutton, NAfME State Advocacy Relations Manager, and James G. Daugherty, Arts Education and Digital Learning Specialist for Davidson County Schools in Lexington, KY as they discuss developing an advocate mindset to advance music education.
