Laying Down the Law: When Advocacy Works

Tuesday, October 17, 2017
SSC 4255 at 2:30pm

Jane Kovarikova
PhD ABD (Western University) and former political staffer and founder of the Child Welfare PAC

This talk will explore how to affect legislative change for social justice initiatives. The story of a bill originally introduced in the Ontario legislature in 2013 that became law this summer illustrates a path to effective change. Lessons learned will be applied to the advocacy strategy behind a new not-for-profit, the Child Welfare Political Action Committee Canada, that will launch at Queen’s Park this fall. The advocacy formula includes: research, engagement organizing, media, and politics.
