In addition to conducting RA business, at last year's convention delegates participated in the Raise Your Hand on Empowered Educators Day on July 2, when educators and leaders came together in support of student-centered, educator-led change. The Raise Your Hand Campaign made its debut during NEA RA 2013. This year delegates joined the event via live video and social media as they took on leadership roles, fought for social justice and worked together to create positive change for students.
