Advocacy Tools: Planning and Messaging

Whether you are wanting to push for a policy change, raise awareness about a pressing issue, or make a clear statement of principle on a divisive topic, you’ll want some media savvy to be seen and heard.

Join Marijean Oldham of Jaggers Communications to learn a tested approach to getting your message out. Participants will cover the following topics:

  • Creating a media plan
  • Crafting and framing a clear message
  • Using media outlets to get your message out
  • Tips for writing press releases and giving interviews

This training will benefit Board Chairs, Executive Directors, Communication Directors — and anyone who works on communications strategy or communicates directly with the media.

American Sign Language interpreters or other communication access accommodations are available upon request. Please submit any accommodations requests to Andrew Robinson, Program Manager, 434-951-9042 or
