Open Toronto Message Board › Brentwood Library Program - Grassroots Advocacy: How Citizens Can Win Campaigns

Brentwood Library Program - Grassroots Advocacy: How Citizens Can Win Campaigns

A former member
Post #: 23
Presented by Gideon Forman, Executive Director of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment.

If you want to make things happen in your community, you need to know how to advocate for your cause. Whether it's getting the city to install a traffic light or getting the province to protect a forest, knowing the rules of effective organizing is crucial. "Grassroots Advocacy: How Citizens can Win Campaigns" will teach you how to mobilize your neighbours, devise compelling messages, and get the ear of politicians.

You'll learn about advocacy through a fascinating case-study approach that gives you behind-the-scenes insight into one of the most successful environmental campaigns in recent years: the effort to win a ban on lawn pesticides across Ontario.

Register at Information Desk or by calling 416-394-5247.

Brentwood Library, 36 Brentwood Road North, Toronto, Ontario M8X 2B5
