Involving Youth Advocates in Policy Change.
Tuesday,  November 13th, 2018 at 3 pm ET

The focus of this webinar is to assist a youth group’s adviser in preparing youth advocates to participate in policy change activities – including state and local legislative activities, as well as non-legislative policy change efforts aimed at schools, retailers and other organizations. Presenters will provide instruction and tips for planning and preparing to conduct policy change initiatives, including preparation to deliver testimony to a legislative or deliberative body.

In addition to simple examples of policy change initiatives, the webinar will provide a step by step description of the process used by students in Dover, NH to pass the a city ordinance in that community as well as a detailed explanation of the successful effort to pass a Tobacco-21 ordinance and an ongoing effort to pass that proposal statewide. Presenters will also provide a detailed description of the “Retail Responsibility Project” a process used to test if local retailers would sell marijuana-themed merchandise to teens and pre-teens, and efforts to get them to change their practices/policies.
