Raising our Voices
HOW TO ORGANIZE EFFECTIVELY AND SUSTAIN A LIFE OF ADVOCACY
This interactive workshop/work session includes Eight Principles to lead by. Participants will learn how to say “yes” and “no”; choose productive and positive alliances; develop messages that get heard; harness the media; and inspire community engagement – so you don’t have to carry the load alone. This interactive experience results in a personalized and customized action plan for each participant. In other words — a party plan to change the world and make children the priority!
