Advocacy in the Time of Trump: Moving Beyond Tactics
Political activism is trending in the U.S. and there’s no shortage of tips
and tactics out there. The problem with diving straight into tactics -
without understanding the rules of the political engagement - is that new
activists can sabotage their own efforts. It’s like building a house
starting with the roof or the sidewalls instead of the foundation.

The solution is training activists to understand the unstated foundational
rules. By learning The Advocacy Framework, activists will be able to
identify goals, pick a winning strategy, and employ the appropriate
techniques naturally. Activists can then dramatically improve their
effectiveness.

Participants learn:
• Why credibility is critical
• How to build political relationships & political capital
• The keys to a successful ask


ABOUT OUR PRESENTER
Stefanie Coxe has over 15 years experience in politics and in the
non-profit world. During that time she met a lot of people who couldn’t
afford a lobbyist but still had a need and passion for advocacy. She formed
her training and e-learning company, Nexus Werx LLC to teach non-profit
leaders and small businesses how to lobby; individuals how to be effective
activists; and first time candidates how to run for office. Stefanie is a
14th generation Cape Codder currently residing in Cambridge, MA. Learn more
