You can’t change systems without advocacy. And the truth is that we wouldn’t find ourselves at this hopeful inflection point without the tireless efforts of our advocates. Just think about the last 18 months. Record-breaking voter turnout in multiple elections. Massive mobilization to get nonprofits, frontline workers, and communities billions of dollars in relief they need to survive. Close collaboration with the new Congress and Administration to ensure we’re making the very most of this new moment of national opportunity.
These are massive successes for civil society. They didn’t happen by luck or accident. This Pop-Up will explore the mechanics of effective advocacy. With transformative change within reach, we’ll learn with some of the most influential advocates about what our ongoing crises have taught us – and how we can (and must) use collective action to move quickly toward a healthier and more equitable future.
