Regardless of political affiliations, the general public remains interested and committed to having clean and ample water for our everyday activities and operations. How we go about protecting our watersheds largely depends on our strategies and public policies, despite our limited resources.

Join this River Network webinar on assessing and building our capacity to do advocacy and community organizing in our communities.

Presented by Alliance for Justice staff, this 90- minute FREE webinar will discuss the relationship between community organizing and advocacy. We will incorporate free tools to help clarify the components of strong advocacy and community organizing programs. We will discuss how to talk to funders about supporting such programs. The webinar will address questions such as:

  • What are all of the targets for policy advocacy and how do you determine which ones your organization should focus on?
  • What steps do community organizers often go through to engage and build leadership in their community?
  • Where is your organization strongest and what areas do you want to focus on strengthening?
  • What should and shouldn’t you say to perspective funders about your advocacy and organizing work?

Please take this 15 minute advocacy survey at least a week before the webinar to let us know how we can best tailor this presentation.
