Civic Matters Workshop: Introduction to Advocacy and Coalition Building

In this workshop in partnership with the Advocacy Institute, we will review the basics of government, how it is structured, and who is involved in change making processes. We will learn about what coalition building is, strategies for getting involved, and discuss the importance of working across regions and issue areas. At the end, you will have the opportunity to share some of the social justice issues you would like to take action on and workshop next steps for your advocacy in an optional working session.

Workshops are designed for participants 18+ who identify as women who are relatively new to civic engagement. We especially welcome primary caregivers, and wage workers, gender-expansive, Black, Indigenous, Asian, Hispanic, Latinx, low-income, and LGBTQ+ persons.
