Join the Raise Colorado Coalition on Dec. 9 to boost your advocacy skills!
On Monday, December 9, the Raise Colorado Coalition is hosting its 2019 Advocacy Training for new, emerging, and experienced advocates who want to learn more about the policymaking process and navigating the line between lobbying and advocacy. In the morning, we’ll share how an idea evolves into a bill and then a law and share best practices for engaging in the process. Over lunch, we’ll hear from a panel of legislators about the importance of community engagement in policymaking. Then, the afternoon session features Cara Lawrence, Esq. of Tierney Lawrence LLC explaining the difference between lobbying and advocacy and how to avoid crossing the line into lobbying when necessary. Feel free to attend the morning *and* afternoon sessions or just attend the portion of the day that feels most relevant to you. More information and registration at bit.ly/RCadvocacy.
