In August of 2017, the Opportunity Nation Coalition and Opportunity Leaders will align and raise our collective voices to educate and engage local, state and federal elected officials on the ground around shared priorities.
The August Advocacy Blitz is Opportunity Nation’s month long effort during the August recess. It’s the perfect time to call, email, tweet and meet with local, state and federal elected officials in their districts and communities to ask them, “How are you working to increase access to opportunity in our community?”
Join us and Commit to Action Today!
In preparation for the Advocacy Blitz, we hosted a series of webinars on key advocacy tactics and skills. The webinar recordings can be found below.
Tell us how you’re taking action this August by using #OppNationActs and #ExpandOpportunity on social media. You’ll also be able to see activities through the Opportunity Nation Coalition Calendar.
