The Art of Relational Advocacy

Collaborative Conference & Community Networking Fair

Join the Prison Creative Arts Project and A Brighter Way for an Art of Relational Advocacy Collaborative Conference and community networking fair.
This is an opportunity for cross-departmental dialogue, learning, growth, and collaborations in the fields of "justice"-involved advocacy. Effective systems-change advocacy requires the development of authentic relationships to engage in productive conversations with the communities we support, allies, detractors, decision-makers, and the public. Our goal is to answer the questions of how to effectively partner with others in order to maximize the impact of advocacy work.
The community networking fair is comprised of different system-impacted advocacy organizations with unique mission focus.
Whether you're practicing in the field or new to the work, the Art of Relational Advocacy Collaborative Conference offers the space to hold open and honest community conversations.
