Advocacy Workshop Registration
Join the National Audubon Society Campaigns Team and a variety of local partners from Missouri and Kansas for a free advocacy training. This workshop will focus on training citizens to be more effective advocates for natural resources conservation, environmental and social justice, and other issues of interest to communities. We will cover everything from speaking to your legislators to designing and implementing issue-based campaigns to building local and regional coalitions. All levels of advocacy experience are welcome! The workshop will be interactive with presentations interspersed with breakout groups, and all attendees are encouraged and welcomed to share their experiences. This is a nonpartisan workshop focused on issues (not candidates or parties).
