This webinar will focus on issues and methods that encourage individuals from any generation (boomers and beyond) to get off the couch and into the world of civic causes and other targets of advocacy. Available data on the political and advocacy activity by age, gender, income, and other characteristics will be presented and discussed. This will also include data from Minnesota’s most-recent elections.
Kathy Kelso, an experienced advocate, will invite ideas that may be effective in inspiring civic advocacy, while profiling a few examples from her tenure with the St. Paul City Advisory Committee on Aging. How agencies and organizations can best recruit participants for involvement in aging-related causes will also be discussed.
