LeadingAge is hosting a three-part advocacy webinar series designed to help leaders of color become involved in advocacy, understand the process at the state and federal levels, and examine the importance of their unique perspective in public policy and advocacy.
Session Three: Let’s Talk About Federal Advocacy
How can leaders of color get involved in advocacy at the federal level? Panelists participating in this webinar will answer that question after providing an overview of the federal advocacy process. Listen while members of the LeadingAge public policy and advocacy team discuss their federal advocacy agenda and outline ways leaders of color can work with LeadingAge to meet shared advocacy goals. A leader of color will offer guidance on how other leaders can work with the executive and legislative branches at the federal level to advance better national policy that address the needs of their organizations, the people those organizations serve, and the team members who deliver services and supports. You’ll take home useful resources available to LeadingAge members interested in advocacy.
