Leaders 2020 Lobbying and Advocacy Training with Pat Libby
Join us this fall for a four-part lobbying and advocacy training program to learn how to successfully influence lawmaking in California.
San Diego Leaders 2020 has partnered with renowned consultant Pat Libby to bring a four-part training and coaching series to San Diego’s emerging leaders. Through hands-on workshops and coursework, participants will learn the framework for conceptualizing and carrying out advocacy campaigns, including crafting new legislative proposals at the city, county or state level for which they can then lobby or, alternatively support and advance existing initiatives. There is also an optional and additional trip to Sacramento to lobby for legislative proposals crafted by participants.
The training is focused on environmental advocacy issues and participants will learn about and work on current local environmental policy initiatives from groups like Climate Action Campaign, Circulate San Diego and the Food Systems Alliance. This is a unique opportunity to participate in a graduate-level course at a discounted rate, learn from one of the most influential people in advocacy, and gain practical skills to apply toward solving problems important to you. Read the syllabus here.
This course is intended for individuals looking to engage with their communities, advocate for important issues, and actively participate in building a brighter future. The training is especially focused on environmental sustainability issues, although those interested in other areas are encouraged to participate.
The training includes four in-person workshop-style meetings on October 4, October 18, November 1 and November 15 from 6-9 p.m. The training also requires participants to work with classmates outside of the classroom to complete reading assignments and conduct research.
