Online Course to Advance and Advocate for Self-Direction

August 18, 2020

We are thrilled to offer an online strategic communications course on advocating for self-direction in partnership with Andy Burness, founder of Burness, a DC-based firm focused on social change. Andy taught a version of this course at the Harvard Kennedy School.  Andy is a long-time advisor to the self-direction movement, starting with the Cash & Counseling Demonstration and Evaluation. 

This 12-week customized course will teach you the practical elements of advocating for self-direction, including how to influence policymakers and funders, engage successfully with media, and more. We believe that these skills  are essential to support self-direction during these difficult times.

The course will run from September 9th through December 2nd. Click here for more details, including the course syllabus and registration information.

We hope you’ll be able to join us for this incredible opportunity!
