NCDA: Building Your Advocacy Skills
|National Community Development Association members rely on the
partnership between federal, state and local governments to meet the
housing needs of low-income individuals. At the federal level, this
translates to a commitment to programs like the Community Development
Block Grant and the HOME program. To keep that partnership strong, we
must let policymakers know how important these services are to the
people they represent. This course is designed to help you become a more
effective advocate in Washington DC -- and beyond!
In this course you'll learn the four keys to effective advocacy, specifically knowing what you want, who you're talking to, how to talk to them and how to follow up.
