Event description

Description

Please join Community Living Above & Facing Addiction - 11/19, 1-5pm - for all or portion of a training event.

Community Living Above and Facing Addiction invites YOU - substance use disorder/mental health advocates, community members, peer/industry support, or just interested in learning more, to join us in learning and exploring best practices for working with our communities. This training is designed to equip community members with the necessary tools with which to affect policy change in our community. These training topics will include:

● Community Organizing ● Policy Matters

● Message Training ● Social Media

Questions to think about prior to event:

1. Why are you an advocate?

2. Who are your community decision makers?

3. What do you have Vs. What do you need?

4. What do you want?

Facing Addiction, a national, non-profit organization dedicated to finding solutions to the addiction/mental health, has selected our community to participate in a pilot program to work to reform public response to influences that hurt our community. Via a grassroots-driven campaign strategy, Facing Addiction will work in partnership with Community Living Above to provide training and guidance to help us bring the issues to the forefront in our community.


The vision of this community effort is to work with grass roots community members, elected officials, news media, social networking, and current resources to build a broad coalition of support for funding and resources to face the issues head on that don’t support the individuals in our community to be the best they can be.

All Pilot Project volunteers and those interested in learning more about community organizing welcome.
