Pre-Session Advocacy Strategy Webinars

January 12 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

The new legislative session begins in a couple weeks. Throughout the 90-day session, it is important that we reach out to our Legislators and share the stories of the children and families we serve. As Legislators grapple with how to address our state’s current fiscal crisis, it will be equally important to communicate the needs and impacts of our services.

To prepare us for the upcoming session, the Alaska Children’s Trust (ACT) is hosting a pair of advocacy webinars scheduled for the afternoons of January 12 and 13. And they’re absolutely FREE!

Strategy sessions will feature an overview of the upcoming legislative session, the do’s and don’ts of nonprofit advocacy, and a snapshot of the new advocacy arm of ACT – “Voices for Alaska’s Children”.
