Join Us for Phoenix Advocacy Training! Survivors Using Their Voices to Make a Difference
According to The American Heritage Dictionary, advocacy is "the act of pleading or arguing in favor of something, such as a cause, idea, or policy". As Brad Phillips from Phillips Media Relations notes, this is a pretty good definition, since it acknowledges that advocacy can take many forms.
But successful advocacy requires effective tools and messaging to make a difference. That's why the Phoenix Society is offering our newly updated advocacy training course at Phoenix World Burn Congress. We know that by bringing together the individual stories of burn survivors and raising our voice as a burn community, we can increase understanding of burn issues, improve burn prevention efforts, and reach more burn survivors.
You can be trained as a Phoenix Advocate through our NEW online training course - or experience the training onsite at Phoenix World Burn Congress.
Gain the tools, templates, and format you need to present your story with purpose and effectivenes to the media, the public, and lawmakers. The advocacy training offered is a collaborative effort between the Phoenix Society and Brad Phillips of Phillips Media Relations.
