This interactive workshop is designed for advocates and individuals who want to impact policies that will help to end all forms of domestic and sexual violence and that will provide services to survivors. Participants will gain a quick update on the 2013 Legislative Session issues and will focus on building their advocacy skills. Stories are the most powerful and persuasive component of building support for our issues. This workshop provides specific training and practice in the art of sharing your personal stories. Many participants will find this helpful preparation for the March 12, Action Day to End Violence Against Women at the Minnesota Capitol.
For those who cannot attend the in-person morning training, please note there will be an afternoon webinar beginning at 3pm. Register using the link above.
