Advocacy is one of the most powerful ways that non-profit organizations can create large-scale social change. When advocacy is successful, an organization can achieve far greater impact than through direct service delivery. However, advocacy is an unpredictable adventure, requiring clear thinking, skill, and luck.
Advocacy work can be large scale, advocating for governments to change policies, or smaller scale, advocating for community members to change behaviors. In this course, you will learn successful advocacy tactics and strategies from two of the leading experts on the subject. Ruth Levine of the Hewlett Foundation and Rakesh Rajani of the Ford Foundation will share real-world examples, interviews with extraordinary advocates, and lessons learned from decades of advocacy experience.
