Webinar: People of Color learning community

The South Southwest PTTC will host session three of its virtual five-part learning community series for prevention professionals working in communities of color. This session will focus on why prevention advocacy matters in communities of color, the difference between education and lobbying, and examples of how to advocate for change.

Please join this conversation about a core component in prevention work. If we are not speaking up for the communities we serve, chances are no one else is speaking up.  

At the completion of this session participants will be able to:  

  • Discuss the significance of working with elected officials at the local, state, and national level to advocate for change that benefits communities of color. 
  • Select strategies to use in advocating for communities of color. 

The purpose of the learning community is to share strategies for creating change that leads to positive outcomes in communities of color.
