Event description

Description

Our board and staff represent a mountain of experience in Springfield. Our board members are or have been non-profit lobbyists, government employees staffing legislative efforts, public relations or policy directors, and some have been involved in advocacy campaigns as activists for more than 50 years! We’ve all had experience on devastatingly unsuccessful efforts, and we’ve all celebrated more than a few victories.

Today, we offer free training in our community for both selfish and altruistic reasons: selfish in that we get to meet hundreds of new advocates and have the chance to engage them in our work (if we are successful), altruistic in that the training itself can be used by any person or organization on any issue to increase impact (even folks who have nothing to do with justice reform).
