Advocacy Institutes are half-day workshops dedicated to training participants in policy advocacy. The training will increase participants' understanding of New York City politics and budgeting, model effective advocacy skills and strategies, and improve their impact in hearings, press conferences, campaigns, and legislative meetings. CACF believes that we all have a responsibility to ensure that resources for the Asian Pacific American community are strongly supported in New York City. Advocacy is a perfectly legal activity for non-profit organizations, and it's fun! You can also invite youth and parents to play a strong role in advocacy efforts.
To hold an Advocacy Institute, please contact CACF with your name, the name of your organization, contact information, and the location and date you wish to hold the training. Advocacy Institutes may be adapted to the needs of your organization as needed.
