City Hall 201: Advocacy in Action

City Hall 201: Advocacy in Action builds on the City Hall 101: Advocacy is for Everyone workshop from February 26th, 2018. Recognizing the context of the new Presidential Administration, this advocacy workshop will provide you with additional strategies and learnings to successfully influence the Mayoral Administration and City Council leadership. In addition, you will have the opportunity to discuss how to develop a successful campaign, gaining practical skills and knowledge on building coalitions and mobilizing community members, communicating key messages and framing solutions, and increasing power and cultivating relationships with policymakers.

Advocacy in Action aims to:

  • Identify learnings from the first four years of the Mayoral Administration and build relationships with the new Council Leadership.
  • Strengthen your ability to develop and implement a campaign.
  • Improve your coalition building, community organizing, messaging, and power analysis skills.
