High Contrast

Below is the recording of Advocacy Steps, a webinar originally broadcast on April 10, 2013.  The recording appears in five segments.

Webinar description: 

Advocacy is the act of problem solving with a purpose and a goal. A parent might engage in advocacy on behalf of his or her child; a person with a disability may advocate for himself or herself; a teacher may advocate on behalf of a student; groups of people may join forces in systemic advocacy efforts to change laws or policies. A step-by-step approach can guide us toward the desired outcome. Regardless of the circumstance or scope, the process of advocacy is similar.

Participants will:

  • Learn how to build a solid foundation of team members to engage the advocacy process
  • Learn the basic steps required for effective advocacy
  • Practice the steps using hands-on activities
  • Learn that advocacy does not need to be adversarial to be effective
