What They Are: 
Self defined and self-organized teams who have committed to meeting together on a regular basis for the next 2-3 years to strategize and advocate for the purpose of influencing city electeds to increase human services funding in their local cities

Who Are the Participants: Local human services providers and advocates who or whose organizations reside in or whose clients reside in the identified cities.

What the Advocacy Teams Do:  Meet quarterly or as self defined to build relationships, provide influence and bring the Alliance message to their city electeds. Regularly report on developments that may impact the Alliance or our strategy. Identify a leader to attend the monthly Alliance General Meeting and report on progress.

What the Alliance can offer:

  • A forum for participants (human service providers and allies) from across the county to work together on this common concern;
  • Identify opportunities;
  • Apply county-wide perspective and strategies;
  • Media and Messaging development;
  • Coordination for analysis and action; and
  • Engage partners, within and across sectors.
