www.SpecialEdVoters.org is dedicated to identifying, endorsing, and publicizing political candidates that support special education and other related issues that affect children with special needs. SpecialEdVoters.org is currently operating in Montgomery County, Maryland. Among other things in 2002, SpecialEdVoters.org organized, held a Board of Education Candidates forum on Special Education, endorsed Board of Education candidates, formed a Political Action Committee (PAC), and campaigned for endorsed candidates. We believe we are the first organization to endorse political candidates for supporting special education and special needs.

One-Click Activism
- It's a would-be activist's dream come true: Someone with kindred values monitors Congress and alerts you to significant votes. Better still, they draft a letter to your congressional delegation and ask if you'd like it faxed right away.

The Office of Advocacy - the National Association of School Boards Legislative Action Agenda

 

National Governors Association (NGA) Center for Best Practices - The mission of the NGA Center for Best Practices is to help Governors and their key policy staff develop and implement innovative solutions to governance and policy challenges facing them in their states Through the staff of the NGA Center, Governors and their policy advisors can: quickly learn about what works, what doesn't, and what lessons can be learned from others grappling with the same problems; obtain assistance in designing and implementing new programs or in making current programs more effective; and receive up-to-date information about what is happening in other state capitals and in Washington, D.C., so Governors are better prepared to react to emerging issues.
