Finding Your Path to Advocacy

SGS Advocacy in Aging Virtual Forum

Bridging research and practice is a cornerstone of the work of SGS members, but policy and advocacy also play a large role at the local and state level. This forum is intended to help participants find their path to advocacy, whatever their work or life focus.

Day 1
A key component of impactful gerontological practice is staying informed and actively involved in policy about older adults. Learn how national and state advocacy groups have affected policy change and get an idea of different ways to get involved. It doesn't matter if you are a seasoned legislative aide or just getting started on your advocacy journey, come away from this afternoon refreshed and energized with ideas about how to get involved in policy and advocacy.

Day 2
Take the lessons from day one a step further. Meet organizations across three states that are advocating for the direct care workforce. Then join us for a special report from SGS about problems and concerns in the south. End the day by joining fellow attendees and voicing your ideas about what advocacy ideas SGS should prioritize and making an action plan!
