When looking at our issue advocacy strategies, how can we strengthen our understanding of evolving concepts like ballot initiatives, organizing, and direct action that together advance this work for the long term?  Join us for a conversation moderated by Julie Fernandes, Rockefeller Family Fund, to help break down those interrelated approaches.  Leaders in the field will share how ballot initiatives are an integral part of issue advocacy, followed by how these measures are implemented in combination with community-driven organizing through ways that lead to increased civic engagement.
