How to Remedy “Advocacy Apathy”
Motivating advocates can be extremely challenging. Through the media, Internet, even Hollywood, citizens are bombarded with the message that their voices don’t make a difference in our democracy. Moreover, some grassroots networks are just worn out – either because previous efforts have been unsuccessful or the legislative process grinds too slowly. This presentation will provide advocacy leaders with tools and strategies for working with grassroots advocates. It will offer information from CMF research to help organizations convince their supporters that their voices make a difference, and motivation tools to turn citizen-slouches into citizen-SUPER-advocates!
