The Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions and the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy are excited to announce the ASU Advocacy Institute, an all-day workshop, October 13th, 2018, specifically designed to prepare nonprofit organizations, community groups and individuals, and, of course, our ASU students for the 2019 Arizona Legislative Session. The event will be held at Gateway Community College, and is free of charge to all attendees. Registration is required.
Advocacy Institute participants will learn the mechanics of law-making at Legislature, the nuts and bolts of advocacy work, and attend special break-out sessions designed to cover the specific political environment of important issues expected to be before the 2019 Legislature. Presenters will share information about key stakeholders, law makers and legislative staff, as well as community coalitions and strategies associated with each issue. Lawyers will cover the legal aspects of nonprofit advocacy, and communications specialists and strategy experts will cover messaging and mediums for influence. Time for audience Q&A is been built into each session. Lunch will feature keynote speaker, Luige del Puerto, Associate Publisher of Arizona News Service and award-winning journalist for Arizona Capitol Times. A late-afternoon reception with Arizona Legislators will end the event.
Event partners include the School of Community Resources and Development, the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy, the Pastor Center for Politics and Public Service, the Lodestar Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Innovation, the School of Public Affairs, and the Arizona Legislative Academy, the ASU Council of Coalitions and Maricopa Community Colleges.
