How can NCHV help you?
NCHV is here to help you prepare for these meetings, even if you have never been an advocate before, and help your local meetings make noise on a national scale. We are offering webinars on how to do advocacy successfully and impactfully, and connections to research and white papers to assist you in informing your conversation. The week of the events, NCHV will also be acting as a force multiplier to amplify the message across social media and the traditional press. Each meeting that is scheduled for this week will be important locally – but when seen together as a movement, they are all important nationally.
Training for first-time advocates:
NCHV hosted a local advocacy-focused training webinar on Friday, November 3, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. EST. Click here to watch this webinar training. Even if you have advocated before, you may find this webinar useful. We will discuss strategies for engaging elected officials and the press, as well as basic advocacy tips.
You might find a national advocacy training webinar from 2016 useful as well, especially if you are looking for help with federal advocacy. You can re-watch this webinar by clicking here.
