Using Advocacy to End Homelessness: A Toolkit for Understanding and Conducting Advocacy
In February 2011, the National Alliance to End Homelessness released "Using Advocacy to End Homelessness: A Toolkit for Understanding and Conducting Advocacy." The toolkit explores strategies to advance policies that prevent and end homelessness and specifically includes ways to build and sustain working relationships with policymakers.
The toolkit includes chapters on a variety of issues, from "Knowing the Rules of Nonprofit Lobbying" to "Achieving Effective Site Visits," and from "Developing a Strategic Advocacy Plan" to "Mobilizing through Social Media," among many other topics. The toolkit includes detailed descriptions of how to execute each strategy as well as engagement tips, adaptable sample materials, and real-life examples.
Download the toolkit on the NAEH website.
