An Advocacy Workshop with Breon Wells
Saturday, February 23
Brown Deer United Methodist Church
5736 W Brown Deer Road, Brown Deer
You voted in the November election. Now, prepare to work with your
newly elected officials as they make policy that shapes our communities.
Have you ever wanted to advocate on issues you are passionate about, but struggle or stumble to put that passion into words? Or perhaps you’re not sure how to even start reaching out to your elected officials. This half-day workshop will equip you with a blend of teaching and practical exercises so you’re ready to step into the halls of power (even if they’re in your own hometown). Get ready to speak and present yourself as the grounded faith leader you are. Learn how to shape your story for impact, and prepare yourself to speak to the people who can make policy changes happen.
This is an ideal workshop for those who are new to People of Faith United for Justice Advocacy Day (scheduled for April 11, 2018), but will be a benefit for anyone interested in being effective in advocating with public officials for policy needs.
