On February 12, Advocacy Alliance Coordinator Herb Cabral led a Storytelling Workshop at LifeLinks, Inc. Family members, advocates, and LifeLinks’ own Family Support Staff came together to help develop Storytelling and Advocacy Skills.
Herb and one of the family advocates led a discussion of how to develop your stories so that families were better able to understand the process of communicating your needs with legislators. They also stressed the importance of having your personal stories documented, so that it will be easier to continue advocacy efforts without starting from the ground up each time.
Another Storytelling Workshop at LifeLinks has been scheduled for April 23. For more information, contact Herb at firstname.lastname@example.org.
