Policy & Advocacy Training at the Capitol

Thank you to everyone that joined us at our Policy & Advocacy Training at the Capitol! We learned, laughed, and teared up from some incredibly moving testimonies.

Access to the Capitol can be intimidating and difficult to navigate. Our training focused on using access to the Capitol as a powerful platform to share narratives and reaching advocacy goals with confidence. Attendees learned about plain language, wrote an elevator pitch, practiced their testimonies in ahearing room, and took a tour of the Capitol!

Thank you to our speakers!
