North Carolina Coalition to End Homelessness

Strategies for Local and National Advocacy Webinar

Conscious economic and policy decisions over the last 30 years have contributed tremendously to contemporary homelessness. Advocacy in support of new policies that reaffirm a commitment to basic human needs is essential to reverse this trend and make homelessness rare and brief. Administrators, staff, and consumers at Health Care for the Homeless projects (and other homeless service providers) have a wealth of first-hand knowledge regarding the changes needed in current policies. The National Health Care for the Homeless Council is offering a free webinar: Strategies for Local and National Advocacy.

Participants will learn strategies for engaging in advocacy at the local level and in Washington, DC, without adding significant burdens to the limited time and resources available to HCH grantees.
