There is still time to register!!
I will once again be presenting the Advocacy 101 Webinar on January 23, 2023 with co-presenters Emily Beauregard, Executive Director of KY Voices for Health, and Representatives Lisa Willner (D, Jefferson) and Russell Webber (R, Bullitt). This is an excellent opportunity for both first-time and more seasoned advocates to get an overall view of how the legislative and public policy system works and to have the opportunity to interact with two legislators about the process and how best to be effective in communicating with legislators and policy-makers.
There will also be discussion about opportunities to advocate for public policy, funding and services at the more local levels – through Metro or city councils, school boards, and boards of health. Although done via Zoom there will plenty of opportunities for Q&A and for input from the audience.
DATE: Monday, January 23, 2023
TIME: 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET
FEE: Free, unless 3 CE hours are desired for which there is a fee, but registration in advance is required
Please feel free to share this information with your colleagues and community contacts. Thanks! - Sheila Schuster, PhD
What is Advocacy Action Network?
Advocacy Action Network is a group dedicated to promoting mental health and disability rights through coalitions.
The 874K Disabilities Coalition represents the over 874,000 Kentuckians with disabilities. We gather together in Frankfort once per year to advocate with legislators and remind them "We Vote. We Matter."
The Kentucky Mental Health Coalition represents the mental health community in Kentucky. We meet several times a year to share advocacy efforts and updates.
