Undertaking advocacy at any scale can be a big project, especially if your organization or agency doesn’t have dedicated staff support for it. That’s why the Birth to Five Policy Alliance, Spitfire Strategies and the First Five Years Fund created this advocacy toolkit.
It’s 56 pages of tipsheets, templates and one-pagers that you’re encouraged to customize for your needs. Although the toolkit was created in 2011, the information is still helpful today, as best practices in reaching out to policymakers and media outlets hasn’t changed much!
