The Annie E. Casey Foundation is hosting an invitational webinar on the Advocacy Learning Lab, Friday October 9th from 3:00-4:00 pm EDT.
Over the years the national network of child advocates, our national policy partners and the Annie E. Casey Foundation have produced an enormous volume of knowledge about promising solutions for the complex challenges facing foster children and families. This knowledge is housed on hundreds of websites and hard copies are often buried on our shelves. The Advocacy Learning Lab (ALL) has been designed to put the very best knowledge from the field at the fingertips of advocates. We believe this will promote peer learning and accelerate the capacity of advocates to be effective in today’s challenging policy environment. The Advocacy Learning Lab has also been designed so that more people can see the whole of the work. Too often we get caught in silos and have no easy way to learn about all of the competencies needed to influence complex multi-issue debates. A special feature of the site is background on the key federal and state policies in 18 domains of public policy affecting children and families. We also believe that advocates need to be intentional and skillful in the area of race, equity, and inclusion so these competencies and resources are woven throughout the site.
