Participants must commit to attending the entire training from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. We will be partnering with Evanston Township High School students for this training, and we are excited to build skills and campaigns for social change with them in this training.

By the end of the training, participants will be able to:

• Articulate the dynamics of political power, how to change those dynamics, and determine how and where to engage in policy change for social justice
• Identify and analyze problems
• Use tools and processes for contextual and problem analysis
• Apply research, planning, and organizing strategies to engage and empower citizens and grassroots groups
• Apply different influence and engagement strategies and activities used in advocacy, and understand which strategies work best and when
• Apply the basics of communication and persuasion for advocacy
