Anybody can be an advocate: Measuring your council's readiness to work on policy (2018)

By Abby Levine (Alliance for Justice), Anne Palmer (Center for a Livable Future)

This webinar discusses the development and use of the Get it Toolgether: Assessing Your Food Council's Ability to Do Policy Work toolkit. Adapted from the Alliance for Justice’s Advocacy Capacity Tool (ACT), the toolkit is designed to help food policy councils (or similar coalitions of diverse stakeholders) assess their capacity to do policy work. It provides them with appropriate resources to increase their knowledge of the policy process and improve their advocacy skills. Listen to this conversation with the toolkit developers to learn about how the toolkit can be used to advance your council’s policy efforts. Featured speakers include Abby Levine, Director of Bolder Advocacy program at Alliance for Justice and Anne Palmer, Program Director at Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future.
