Tradeswomen Policy Advocacy Training


The Policy and Action Committees of the National Taskforce on Tradeswomen Issues will conduct a Tradeswomen Policy Advocacy Training to go over strategies tradeswomen and their allies can engage in to ensure that policymakers understand the needs of tradeswomen in order to pass legislation that meets their needs.

We will go over the process of preparing for and attending lobby visits with legislators and staff; how to contact legislative offices in writing or over the phone; engaging in social media advocacy; and other media-related advocacy, including writing op-eds. We will also discuss the status of pending and/or enacted legislation affecting the rights of tradeswomen and/or access to jobs in the trades.

The training is designed to be accessible to people who have experience with legislative advocacy as well as those who are newer to the process.
