There is No Magic Wand: Creating a Culture of Advocacy, One Step at a Time.

Wednesday, May 16, 2018: 1:45 PM-3:15 PM
Lakeshore A (Hyatt Regency Minneapolis)
In the current political environment, it is important for health centers to be strong and effective advocates. In this workshop, we will learn how to create a culture of advocacy in health centers when competing priorities take time and energy away from such efforts, while addressing barriers related to leadership readiness, staff interest, and resources. The second part will discuss how to frame the narrative on homelessness issues so that it bolsters advocacy efforts and expands public understanding in order to attract new allies and build a demand for change.
