Advocacy Training - Tuesday, July 22. Peachtree City, GA
Whether or not you agree with Autism Speaks or not, they are providing a FREE training about advocacy.
Advocacy in this context means - how do you change the world for the better through influencing legislation?
Shelley, the presenter, promised me that this is part training, part comedy routine, which is good.
In my experience, many grassroots advocacy training programs comes from a sense of urgency (fear) or decorum (boring).
Even if you don't have a loved one affected by Autism, I'm hoping she'll talk about the process of changing laws. But if you want to hang back til next time, that's fine - I think she's coming back in the fall.
If you're coming, make sure your RSVP. There's no childcare at this event (I'm in the same boat as you - I'm bringing my kids and hoping for the best.) RSVP at http://bit.ly/ASBTB-GA
