Understanding Political Advocacy and Effective Engagement with Policymakers
In preparation for the 2023 Legislative Session, NCDESV invites you to attend our Advocacy 101 Webinar: Understanding Political Advocacy and Effective Engagement with Policymakers. This webinar will focus on the differences between direct and grassroots lobbying and how and why non-profit organizations should engage in lobbying. More importantly, this webinar will give attendees the tools and resources to understand the Nevada State Legislature and how to engage with legislators to influence policy effectively.
Political advocacy is one of the most effective ways to encourage and influence change within a cause or movement. Every day, laws are passed and implemented at the state and federal levels that directly affect our communities and the clients we serve. Engaging in the legislative process is crucial in that it:
- Ensures that victim-survivor voices are heard, and their needs are centered.
- Allows us to elevate marginalized communities; and,
- Gives us a platform to educate on the need for violence prevention.
This webinar will be recorded and sent out if you cannot attend live.

Date & Time: January 10th, 2023 10:00AM – 11:30AM
Recommended Audience: Domestic and sexual violence advocates and professionals working with victim-survivors interested in learning more about current policy issues.
