Join us for the second of our two part series on "Telling Our Clients' Stories - Effective Story Telling." In the second part of the two-part series, we will focus on telling our clients' stories to the public and the media – using them as advocacy tools to work for systemic changes. Often, we need to sell the media and the general public on the problems our clients face to change the tide of public opinion about an issue and build momentum for policy change. Join us as our presenter, Rana Elmir, Deputy Director of the ACLU of Michigan, discuss with us effective ways to tell our clients' stories to the public, the media and even legislators.
