Literacy Research Association has a history of investigating how critical literacy can help teachers and/or children advocate for themselves and issues in and out of the classroom. Literacy educators and researchers are uniquely situated to leverage critical literacy practices to advocate. This alternative session will provide opportunities to discuss how LRA members can, themselves, practice critical literacies as they engage in advocacy efforts through their own critically literate practices.
