This web seminar is based on the 2017 Aging in America Conference (AIA) workshop “Advocacy in Motion: Taking Action Together.”

Now more than at any point in recent memory, people have been saying, “I want to get involved, but I don’t know how.” When you want to educate, inform and advocate, what are some of the do’s and don’ts? How can you communicate effectively and influence change? In the “Advocacy In Motion: How to Get (and Stay) Involved” web seminar, you will learn tips on how to get your message through to the individuals who shape your community. This is a must-do training for anyone involved with civic engagement, particularly for those in the aging field. Remember, civic engagement does not stop on election day; it is just beginning!

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Understand the importance of advocacy and civic engagement at this critical juncture in public policy;
  • Identity what nonprofits are and are not allowed to do while involved in advocacy;
  • Discuss tips and techniques in three methods of communications that can be used before, during and after interactions between participants and public officials or their staff; and,
  • Tailor communication techniques to a specific issue or area of expertise.


Cyndi Rossi is the legislative liaison at the Western Reserve Area Agency on Aging, a private nonprofit agency serving five counties in Northeast Ohio.





William Tarter, Jr., MPA, serves as the policy planning associate for the Center for Community Solutions, a non-partisan, nonprofit public policy think tank with offices in Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio.
