The Library Advocacy and Funding Conference features a number of sessions from political operatives, campaigners, and issue-related organizations that can teach you the skills you need to be a champion of change.
Not only will you learn how to build political support for funding your library, but you’ll also learn skills and strategies for ensuring strong first amendment protections, working to secure the freedom to read, and supporting free information access and more.
Whether you want to raise awareness for your cause, run for office or create lasting change in your community, many of these sessions will teach you how to get started. You’ll be learning from some of the best experts in politics and advocacy.
Here are just a few examples of some of the sessions that will help you learn to advocate for libraries and create a better America.
