Advocating for Change
Advocating for change is a hands-on, four-module training series instructed by our experts designed to help advocates develop skills to engage and best support policy change efforts. The four modules include:
Module 1 – Fundamentals of Advocacy Strategies
• Participants will learn what advocacy tools are, including messaging, strategies, and how to organize to influence change. We will develop messaging around the challenges.
Module 2 – Power & Process (Places & Faces)
• Participants will learn “where decisions are being made,” “who is making those decisions,” and more importantly “who or what is
influencing those decisions.”
Module 3 – Lobbying vs. Advocacy
• Participants will learn the difference between lobbying and advocating. Using the “Alliance for Justice” tool kit, participants will have access to free legal resources to assure them of their rights. Information provided will demonstrate that non-profits can lobby without fear of losing their 501c3.
Module 4 – Advocacy Evaluation
• Participants will learn to measure the results of their advocacy campaign. What did you do? How well did it work? Did you make a difference? You will need to chart mid-course corrections and celebrate triumphs.
