Want to advocate for prevention but don't know how?
In 2011, Nancy Amidei of the Civic Engagement Project conducted an "Advocacy 101" training for the Engage Seattle project. The City of Seattle posted handouts and a video of her presentation on their website. These resources are a great place for substance abuse and violence prevention advocates to learn more about the legislative process, the important role they play in law-making, and how easy it is to be an advocate. Among the handouts is an advocacy guide for public employees and people who are funded by government dollars.
