The Center for Civic Engagement offers an engaging introduction to advocacy workshop for students. In this workshop students will identify important social issues, recognize personal strengths, skills, and resources and how they are to be used in the advocacy process. Students will also gain a brief introduction to Deepa Iyer's Social Change Ecosystem Map. They will learn how to identify elected officials, effectively utilize them in the advocacy process, and steps to develop an advocacy campaign. If you would like a representative from the Center for Civic Engagement to present to your class or during a club meeting please contact us or email Kate Adams.
We are happy to cover your class in your absence or supplement to your planned lecture or meeting agenda. The workshop can run from 30-75 minutes. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions.
