Leveraging Relationships: The Role of the Advocate in Tracking System Response

PART II – A Blueprint Perspective

Thursday, October 11, 2018

2:00 – 3:15 pm Central

Presenters: Amalfi Parker-Elder, Senior Program & Training Specialist, Praxis International and Bree Adams-Bill, Blueprint for Safety Coordinator, Saint Paul and Ramsey County Domestic Abuse Intervention Program

Many advocacy programs have worked diligently to overcome difficult history with judges, prosecutors, law enforcement or others in order to foster meaningful relationships with system partners. It can be a difficult task to maintain these relationships when advocates become aware of a problematic response or outcome and need to push for change. In Part I of Leveraging Relationships, Rose Thelen, Praxis International Rural Technical Assistance Partner, shared her experience with strategizing to make tangible system reforms, outside of the Blueprint for Safety framework, in mostly rural communities, with varying levels of relationships between community-based advocacy and system practitioners (view the recording of Part I). In Part II, Saint Paul Blueprint Coordinator, Bree Adams Bill, will continue the conversation on approaches and strategies for advocates to use when working with system partners. Bree will discuss specific barriers to change she has encountered even though a formal seat is reserved for advocacy in Saint Paul’s Blueprint CCR. She will also share what approaches work for her in striking the balance of her role as an advocate and her role as a coordinator.
