Advocacy Training

  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of NWA Offices 91 W. Colt Square Drive Fayetteville, AR, 72703 United States (map)

When: Tuesday, February 20th

Time: 6 pm to 8 pm

Where: Big Brothers Big Sisters Offices located at 91 W. Colt Square, Suite 1, Fayetteville, Arkansas 72703

Why: Refugees need our collective voices now more than ever! At the national and local level, refugee resettlement is at an all-time low. Our representatives need to hear from our community, who has supported us every step of the way, that refugee resettlement is important to Northwest Arkansans. You'll learn about Canopy's mission, the nuts and bolts of refugee resettlement, and Canopy's current "ask". You'll learn how to craft your "ask" and what the most effective strategies are when it comes to influencing our representatives.
