Advocacy Bootcamp Webinar Series

Part 2 of 3: Grow Your Grassroots

WEBINAR

Advocacy Bootcamp Webinar Series

COVID-19 has presented a unique opportunity for aging services providers to hone their advocacy skills. The pace of change in laws and rules is rapid. Public officials have rarely been so interested in what is happening in nursing homes and how home and community based providers are meeting the needs of older Ohioans who are isolated in their homes.

Onsite meet-and-greets with lawmakers have given way to more intimate Zoom briefings, and candidates are working to understand how the topics covered in the headlines are playing out in their district. This election season, make a point to brush up on your advocacy skills, with a focus on nuts and bolts, grassroots action and political giving.

Each session of this series will include assignments, building upon each presentation to help participants build
relationships with local leaders and develop a plan for grassroots action.

Who will benefit from this webinar:

  • Leadership
  • Clinicians
  • Middle Management
  • Social workers

By building upon information from Session 1, attendees will identify the steps needed to construct a strong grassroots action plan. This session will feature State Representative Bill Reineke and Good Shepherd Home’s Chris Widman. The pair will discuss how scheduling a visit with your legislator, or other local leader, can give your organization a stronger voice when decisions are made, and how providing first-hand knowledge to issues that matter most, creates a deeper connection for your district’s legislator. Attendees will hear how to tailor their grassroots efforts in the COVID era, when grassroots work is often done remotely.
