Advocacy 101: Making Your Voice Heard to Make a Difference

September 30            11am-12:30pm CT

Public policy and advocacy can feel overwhelming . . . Where do you start? Why does it matter? Can you really make a difference? 

In truth, our colleagues working directly with children and families make the BEST advocates. We welcome ACRC members to join Lisette Burton, our chief of policy & practice, to identify and actively pursue advocacy opportunities that ultimately support better outcomes for those you serve.

Learn about why you should become an advocate; the basics of the federal legislative process; the distinctions between lobbying, advocacy, and influence; advocacy strategies; and more.

This webinar is an excellent training opportunity for people new to public policy or interested in elevating their advocacy to the next level.

Encourage all levels of staff to attend! Advocacy is not only the job of leadership, but of all who care for children and families.


-Lisette Burton, Esq. Chief of Policy and Practice, ACRC
