Training for Becoming an Effective Advocate for Peace and Justice
May 27, 2020, 6:00 – 8:00 pm
Due to concerns of the Covid-19 virus, the training has been moved from the Grand Traverse Resort setting to a virtual setting via our computers through the use of Zoom software. The time has been changed and shortened to be held for 2 hours, 6:00–8:00 pm.
Please know this is our “Plan B” as we are changing the location/method of the training, but, it still remains “Plan A” in the content of the training. This will help us gain skills and strategies to become more eﬀective advocates for many of our passions and interests.
The Friends Committee for National Legislation (FCNL) staﬀ members have agreed to oﬀer the same training they would have provided in person to be oﬀered in an alternative format, online, via Zoom.
We will still meet the goals of the training to:
- Gain skills and strategies to take collective action in our communities.
- Use interactive activities to prepare us to engage in grassroots actions by building on-going relationships with local decision-makers, State and Federal members of Congress and media.
- Join with other advocates, who live in our community, who have a passion for taking actions for Peace and Justice issues.
- Use our new skills by fostering a network of advocates within our community and state.
