Training Students for Civic Engagement

Monday, December 11, 2017 (5pm - 6pm US/Eastern)


Based out of the Episcopal Church’s Office of Government Relations in Washington, D.C., on Capitol Hill, the Episcopal Public Policy Network (EPPN) is a grassroots network of Episcopalians dedicated to public policy advocacy in service of policy priorities of the the Episcopal Church, such as environmental stewardship, international development, and refugees and Immigration.

This webinar will showcase opportunities for students in grades 7-12 to learn about civic engagement and how to get involved in advocacy to our federal government, including opportunities for student advocacy training and ways to incorporate the EPPN and advocacy work into student trips to Washington, DC.
