Webinar: NW PTTC Activating communities for change - Region 10

We know that policy work is important for creating lasting change, but how do we navigate and impact a regulatory landscape that can be confusing and at times fraught with hidden pitfalls? This four-session distance learning series offers participants an interactive opportunity to explore the prevention and regulatory landscape in order to better understand the system, analyze the current state of laws and regulations, and work toward activating communities for change.  The series will include skill-based learning opportunities, individual and group activities, reading assignments, and group discussion.

By the end of the series, participants will have increased their capacity to:

  1. Explore the regulatory framework within their state and the process for addressing policy issues
  2. Analyze laws and rules using a prevention/public health framework
  3. Identify additional factors, such as social justice, social equity, economic pressures, pandemic responses, etc., in assessing policies and developing messaging
  4. Frame messages for optimal influence
  5. Access resources to effectively educate and advocate using a prevention/public health framework
  6. Develop a plan to activate community change
