This presentation addresses how to develop our advocacy skills to make us more effective in influencing public policy. You will learn about the necessary components of effective personal advocacy, such as combining a story with data. (Data makes you credible, story makes you memorable.) Characteristics of effective organizations are presented, such as putting people in community together for mutual purpose and creating a sense of urgency around a specific action. Instruction in how to speak effectively with officials using the EPIC format is also offered. In sum, if you want to improve how to be an effective advocate, this webinar offers sound advice. This webinar was created by Jos Linn, Manager of Grassroots Impact for RESULTS, a nonpartisan advocacy organization that works to end poverty nationally and globally. Linn graciously created this webinar upon our request to educate school psychologists about advocacy.
