Platinum Ambassador Assembly

The 2018 Platinum Ambassador Assembly will take place in Washington, DC on March 12-13. In place of a traditional Advocacy Summit, this NEW event will feature specialized and advanced trainings for a small cohort of our top grassroots volunteers, our Platinum Ambassadors! The event focuses on cultivating skills in the train the trainer model that will empower our Platinum Ambassadors to excel not only on Capitol Hill with their elected officials, but also in their hometown with their local communities. Platinum Ambassadors will receive full scholarships to the event as an award for their dedicated advocacy efforts throughout 2017.

The Advocacy Summit will return next year, and we will alternate these two events in the future.
