Active Citizenship 201: Public Advocacy
Tuesday, April 4th
11:30 AM-12:45 PM, CE 306
Now that elections have happened and elected officials have been sworn into office, it’s time for community members to get to work too, through advocacy. Advocacy is one way in which community members give their voice to elected officials to ensure the growth of their communities. It is work that is centered on building partnerships to advance the betterment for an individual, a group, cause, or an organization. Join us for this interactive workshop that will allow you to learn and use tools and ideas that will equip you to be an advocate in your community. 

*Lunch will be served on a first-come, first-served basis.
