On Thursday, March 6, the ALA Washington Office kicked off the first of several webinars entitled: Advocacy and the Modern Librarian: ALA Resources and Events to Help YOU Go Forth and Advocate.
The webinar, which was well attended with over 200 participants, will be made available on the Washington Office website for those who missed it, along with the related materials. We have received positive responses about the content of the webinar and the presenter, Ms. Stephanie Vance. There has also been new interest generated in joining the ALA’s Federal Library Legislative and Advocacy Network, including a new person stepping up to take on the responsibility of spreading the word to the state of Pennsylvania!
This webinar was one of the first steps in the Washington Office’s efforts to help ALA advocates “speak up” about the library message. We’re offering a series of new resources in the coming months, including webinars, podcasts, online classes and materials to make your federal grassroots lobbying experience as easy and exciting as possible. Stay tuned for our next webinar coming soon!
