Advocacy Training Project

 
Let your voice be heard! Join the National Council of Jewish Women’s Advocacy Training Project to acquire the skills needed to make a difference at the local, state, and national levels. Experts will teach you how to become an effective champion for the causes you are passionate about.
“Presenting Your Advocacy Message,” the first in a series of six workshops, will be held on Sunday, September 10 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. This workshop will help you craft a succinct message so you can communicate effectively about your cause. You’ll gain skills and tools that will be useful in speaking, writing, social media, and all forms of communication.
Topics for the next five workshops are:
  • How to Advocate for Legislation – Sunday, October 22
  • Social Media for Advocacy – Sunday, November 5
  • Taking Charge of Media Relations – Sunday, December 10
  • How to Write an Op-Ed – Sunday, January 21, 2018
  • Getting Appointed to a Board or Commission – Sunday, February 11, 2018
The workshops can be taken singly or in a series, and attendees who complete all six workshops will receive a certificate of completion from the City of West Hollywood.  The cost is $20 per workshop or $110 for all six workshops ($10 discount).
Each workshop will take place on a Sunday from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the NCJW Los Angeles Council House, 543 N. Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90036.  Free parking is available in a lot adjacent to the building, and the site is wheelchair-accessible.
