Join the Advocacy Institute for our annual Virtual Summer Camp: Advocacy 101 series where we will be giving advocates an overview on effectively developing a state legislative advocacy campaign. Over the course of 6 sessions spanning three weeks in July, we will discuss how to set the stage for your legislative campaign to be successful, how to work effectively in coalitions, understanding the key decision makers in Albany, and navigating the complexities of the budget and legislative process. Each week, one session will delve into effective advocacy while the second, regional spotlight, session will focus on advocates and their work in Western New York, the Hudson Valley, and in Long Island. The sessions will be held on the following dates from 2 to 3:30PM:

  • Thursday July 2
  • Tuesday July 26
