Course Overview

How can we effectively advocate for the communities we serve if we don’t work alongside them and enhance their power?

Move beyond your role as a legal aid lawyer and see yourself as a community catalyst, trusted advisor, and partner. The Shriver Center’s Community Lawyering training brings a new mindset to equal justice advocacy and provides concrete steps to build and sustain strong relationships among community members.

You’ll learn how to activate issues identified by the community, lead a successful advocacy and media campaign, and facilitate community leadership. We’ll share real-life examples from groups across the country. You can even organize this course in conjunction with your local community leaders and create a relationship building exercise. Working together, we can achieve real change.
