Our “Grassroots Advocacy 101” program on April 12 was such a success that we’re offering a longer workshop that will offer a deeper dive into advocacy training.
At “Grassroots Advocacy and Skill Building” on Saturday, June 3, Brian Rawson, an experienced advocacy trainer, will teach you how to use tools and techniques to advocate for the issue of your choice. While examples given will focus on environmental policies, the skills you’ll acquire are applicable to any advocacy effort. The deadline for reservations is May 22.
This program will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on June 3 at the Burlingame Recreation Center, 850 Burlingame Ave., Burlingame. The cost is $15. Coffee, tea and muffins will be included.

Brian will share some of the strategies behind the post-election movement for change and will provide insights on how to proactively engage policy makers and inspire action. You will practice refining your message for a target audience, learn to give a brief, persuasive talk on an issue and develop tactics that get noticed by those with the power to create change. In addition, you will learn the best ways to contact leaders and how to partner with others to magnify your influence.
