Advocacy Resources

We believe it's important to help our members and all those who are interested in Open Access make the strongest possible case we advocating for policies at the national level.  To that end, we have a collection of documents, ranging from our own position statements to letters in support of public access policies from out members, that you can use and build off of when lobbying the government.  

Action Center: Our action center includes template letters for all active legislation for which the Coalition is lobbying.  We run the action center to make it as quick and easy as possible for students to make their voices heard at the national level.

Visit the Alliance for Taxpayer Access for more information on active US legislation (FRPAA).
