Resources from National Advocacy Training Webinar: Strategizing and Crafting an Effective Advocacy Message

Please find resources below from Consumer Voice's first free advocacy training webinar - Strategizing and Crafting an Effective Advocacy Message - that was held February 12th, 2015. This webinar, hosted by Robyn Grant, Director of Public Policy & Advocacy, and Marybeth Williams, Public Policy Associate, used the subject of nursing home staffing - specifically 24 hour registered nurse (RN) coverage in nursing homes - to teach participants how to develop a strategy around an issue and then choose key points about the issue to create an effective advocacy message. It also addressed methods of tailoring those key points to a particular audience. For information on the next three in a series of four free advocacy training webinars Consumer Voice will be hosting, please click here.
