Lobbying, Educating, Advocating: What to do, Where You Are, to Educate People Around You
It is a critical time in states – they started their new budget year in July, are preparing for their new legislative sessions beginning in January, are facing many potential changes in the federal state relationships and funding, and in some states, are still digging out from the great recession. State and local policymakers are looking for partners, solutions, and ways to stretch their dollars. Perhaps most importantly, they are looking for ways simply to make life better for their citizens. You have some of that information! It’s important to share the benefits of inclusive higher education, including employment, with state policymakers. This webinar will look at what you can and cannot do, how to do it, who to approach and how to say it. Templates and tools will be shared. Whether you are an experienced advocate or a beginner, there is something here for you.
