It is said in politics that, if you are not sitting at the table, you and your interests are on the table! Policy advocacy is about knowing the key officials at the table, obtaining public funding for protection projects and raising the profile of your land trust with public officials and key constituencies. Advocacy complements virtually everything else your organization does. Getting into advocacy can be very easy and simple. Learn from converts, land trust colleagues who have moved their organizations into advocacy and who attest to its benefits.
Together we will advance change and increase impact for land conservation.
