Advocacy in the Time of Trump: Moving Beyond Tactics
Political activism is trending in the U.S. and there’s no shortage of tips and tactics out there. The problem with diving straight into tactics - without understanding the rules of the political engagement - is that new activists can sabotage their own efforts. It’s like building a house starting with the roof or the sidewalls instead of the foundation.

The solution is training activists to understand the unstated foundational rules. By learning The Advocacy Framework, activists will be able to identify goals, pick a winning strategy, and employ the appropriate techniques naturally. Activists can then dramatically improve their effectiveness.

Participants learn:
• Why credibility is critical
• How to build political relationships & political capital
• The keys to a successful ask
