Spring 2019 Advocacy for the Common Good

The Center for Social Concerns is offering a one-credit, hands-on advocacy course in which students will develop a shared understanding of advocacy and the common good and cultivate skills to help strengthen advocacy planning and action in pursuit of social justice. Students will be introduced to advocacy tools and mechanisms, including mapping power, building a constituency, developing effective messaging, utilizing the media, and influencing decision makers. Students will then develop and implement advocacy campaigns on a particular issue. There will be 4 "check-in" class sessions (see below) and a final class session in which each group will share its campaign phases--research, media use, public meeting--and address challenges as well as celebrate successes. 

Class meeting dates:

Two-day opening workshop (meals provided)
Friday (1/18), 5:00–8:45 p.m.
Saturday (1/19), 9:00 a.m.–4:15 p.m.
