Our issues are making headlines, as people living in poverty are in constant threat due to harmful proposals at the state and federal levels. How do we connect the dots for our audiences from one news story to the next? How do we empower and bolster our clients to share their own stories and use their own voice in advocacy? How do we emphasize values over problems as we seek to change hearts and minds? Learn from communications leaders at law and policy organizations as they share recent experiences and offer inspiration and guidance to advance our collective work.
