Camp Prosperity 2019: Advocacy Summer Camp Webinar Series
Announcing the Camp Prosperity 2019: Advocacy Summer Camp Webinar Series!
Summer is officially here and what better way to usher in the new season than with summer camp? Welcome to Camp Prosperity 2019! Just as the summer camps of our youth were an opportunity to develop new skills, Camp Prosperity is an opportunity to elevate your readiness as an advocate of your community.
If you camped with us last year, you know that Camp Prosperity is a 3-part virtual learning session aimed at local advocates, service providers, and practitioners interested in engaging in advocacy to strengthen financial security for the communities they serve. Camp participants will have the opportunity to win prizes on each webinar, share successes and challenges with a community of other advocates and enter our advocacy contest to win one complimentary registration to the 2020 Prosperity Summit! Join us for this fun, free and interactive series that provides tools, resources and practitioner insight on what it takes to be an effective advocate.
Webinar 1: The Case for Nonprofits in Advocacy
Join us on July 23rd from 12:30 - 2:00pm ET for the first of three Camp Prosperity virtual learning sessions. During this webinar, our camp counselors will share how nonprofits can engage in advocacy, identify and address common misconceptions and barriers to nonprofits engaging in advocacy and share proven strategies for effective organizational advocacy. Nonprofits can play a huge role in shaping policy around economic justice issues and we’ll show you how. Please register below and share with your networks!
Webinar 2: Race, Data and the Story of Your Community
Join us on July 30th from 12:30 - 2:00pm ET for part two of Camp Prosperity 2019! This webinar will focus on how data can be used to make the case for equitable policies and how to use data and the needs of the community to discern which issues to focus on. In addition to sharing data from the Prosperity Now Scorecard, our camp counselors will share tips and best practices for advancing issues of racial wealth equity and how to craft compelling stories.
Webinar 3: Building Your Coalition for 2020 and Beyond
Join us on August 6th from 12:30 - 2:00pm ET for our final Camp Prosperity webinar of the summer. Now that you’ve learned how to utilize data to advocate for your case, this webinar will focus on using those tools to activate your network to coalesce around issues of economic injustice. Our camp counselors will discuss how to manage and sustain coalitions during uncertain political times. We’ll discuss skill-building tactics, fundraising, and how to deal with burn out over time.
