You or your clergy leaders are invited to participate in a one-of-a-kind Clergy Advocacy and Media Training on October 10-12, 2018, at the United Methodist Building, 100 Maryland Avenue, NE, Washington, DC (across from the U.S. Supreme Court). The goal is to equip clergy as powerful advocates at a critical time in America.
Masters Series for Distinguished Clergy (MSDC), is a 3-day interactive session, hosted by Skinner Leadership Institute, and sponsored by AARP. These capacity building sessions take place at a time when critical issues impacting African Americans, like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Health Care, and Supplemental Food Assistance (SNAP), are under assault.
WHAT YOU NEED FOR ENROLLMENT: Cost of the program is $500.00 per person (includes meals, materials, and a new Clergy Leaders Advocacy Toolkit). Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis as seats fill up fast for this practical hands-on clergy advocacy training. The deadline for registration and payment is October 1st.
This three-day course will include invaluable teaching on:
- How to shape public policies, mock hearings, and congressional meetings.
- How to shape real-time media messages through a mock press conference.
- How to launch a church-based social media campaign.
- How to impact public policy at the state level (e.g. Medicaid).
