Executive Director, Aida Barragan Attends National Skills Summit in DC

Last week, Aida Barragan joined advocates and policy makers at the National Skills Summit in Washington DC.

Hosted by the National Skills Coalition, Aida Barragan attended meetings and conferences with members of congress and their staff aimed at advocating for opportunities to advance a national skills agenda through a range of federal policies, including work-based learning, public assistance, higher education, immigration, funding, and infrastructure.

The conference was successful in examining the opportunities and challenges for advocates, including the potential policy vehicles that provide equitable opportunities for immigrants and other populations with basic skills barriers.
