Advocacy 101 Training – June 2nd

Leave a comment

  If you were not able to attend Advocacy 101 Training at Temple Beth Am in March – here is another opportunity.  Nancy Amidei is a wonderful teacher!

The Seattle/King County Coalition on Homelessness (SKCCH) and Faithful Action in Transforming Homelessness (FAITH)  present the next:Homelessness Advocacy 101 workshop!

Each spring, as Congress considers important bills and budget proposals, we organize to strengthen the federal government’s commitment to a safe, housed, and healthy United States. In order to house people and prevent and end homelessness, we need MUCH more affordable housing, strong supportive services, and fair and helpful laws. At this workshop, we will discuss the bills and policies being reviewed currently at the federal level and practice the steps that everyone can take to make sure housing and homelessness concerns are prioritized in the national Capitol. 

In just two hours, we take you through “Advocacy 101,” a FUN training with the incomparable pro-democracy cheerleader Nancy Amidei. Together with other local experts and allies, we present the facts about 3-4 important proposals, along with simple actions and sample messages. You will leave informed and inspired with tools for engaging your classmates, fellow congregants, neighbors and others to speak up and make a difference.

Join us Saturday, June 2 from 10am to Noon at the Keystone United Church of Christ.
