Advocacy Academy

Each year, the UPHA Advocacy Unit works with partners like USOPHE to host an Advocacy Academy.  Normally, this event includes training and hands-on experience at the Capitol during the legislative session.  The 2021 event, however, will be virtual and not include an event at the Capitol.

The 2021 Advocacy Academy will be a 4-part webinar series held from 12pm-1pm on January 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th.  All of the webinars are free with an optional donation. Donations may be tax deductible, contact a tax specialist for more information.
