Legislative Advocacy in the Time of COVID (Webinar Training)

While the Iowa Legislature is convening in-person at the Capitol, IowaCASA discourages victim advocates from having face-to-face meetings with elected officials this year due to the ongoing pandemic. However, it's still just as important as ever to make sure legislators hear from you about what survivors in your communities need to heal and thrive. Join Public Affairs Coordinator Matty Tate-Smith and IowaCASA Lobbyist Amy Campbell for this interactive webinar. Topics covered will include: a debrief on Iowa's legislative body following the elections; messaging tips and framing; and best ways to connect with elected officials during the pandemic. Recorded on 2/11/2021. English-language captions are included in the training video. Please submit your evaluation after watching the webinar training in full.
