Long Island: Coming to the Table
Long Island is home to many advocacy groups fighting for a better world – and it is one of the most segregated and unequal regions in the country. How did we get here, and what can we do about it? Please join the Advocacy Institute for a four-part series on the policy choices that have led to structural inequalities in Long Island, current campaigns that seek to address these inequalities, the nuts and bolts of doing legislative and budget advocacy at the state level, and how to get ready for 2021. These sessions will bring to the table advocates from diverse issue areas and different regions across the island.
- From Organizing to Albany: Fighting & Winning at the State Level (11/12). This session will also be offered in Spanish on 12/15 – click here to register.
- Getting Ready for 2021 (11/23).
- Race & the Advocacy Landscape of Long Island (1/14/21).
- Advocacy Campaigns in Long Island (1/21/21)
All sessions will take place from 2-3:30 pm. Sessions are free and open to policy advocates, organizers, community members, volunteers, and anyone else working toward a more just and equitable Long Island. Advance registration is required – you can find more info on each session and sign up here. Participation in all events in the series is not required, but is strongly encouraged.
