Social Change Advocacy: Be the change you seek
Maren Woods, Rural Program Manager, Diane Docis, ALC Staff, and Sandra Pilgrim-Lewis, ALC Faculty

Community-based advocates are sometimes the only voice in rural communities asking others to recognize the issue of violence against women and the urgency for change. They face many obstacles to having their voices heard; long-held power dynamics within systems and the political, social, and cultural climate of rural communities can create general resistance to change. This webinar is an opportunity for rural advocates to learn together about the theoretical foundation, core principles, and core activities of social change advocacy to elevate our collective response to violence against women. We’ll talk about how to apply this framework in rural settings while ensuring that women’s realities and needs are at the center of our change efforts.
