Plymouth Court from 10:00 am-3:30 pm on July 18.  This one day advocacy training will include a discussion of issues and training on advocacy techniques.  Learn what you need to do to make sure Policy Makers hear and listen to advocates of the senior programs, services, benefits and supports that are vital to older persons.  Legislators, representatives from the Executive Office, and advocates are being invited to help the metropolitan senior community to refine and expand advocacy skills in an era where advocacy is more important than ever.  The cost of this program is $15 (scholarships available).
