Advocacy Through Education Training

Advocacy 101 Introduction to Advocacy Webinar

All staff and academics are encouraged to participate in the online introduction to Advocacy Through Education training.

(Advocacy 101)

Vice President Allen-Diaz encourages everyone, including staff, to participate in the Introduction to Advocacy Through Education training session by watching a recording of the program.

As part of this webinar, Steve Nation, former executive director of ANR Governmental & External Relations, explains the objectives of educating policymakers and the public about the ways all Californians benefit from ANR research and extension programs. He talks about the difference between advocacy (through education) and lobbying, and why it is important as public employees that ANR academics and staff avoid lobbying decision makers. Mike Miller and Paula Hamilton lead participants through the six steps to advocacy: relationship building, education, forming partnerships, community mobilization, media advocacy and party politics.
