2015 Iowa Hunger Summit
The Hunger Advocate’s Toolkit
Mr. Rick McNary - VP of Public & Private Partnerships, Outreach, Inc.`
Mr. Nathan Magrath - Manager of Communications and Outreach, Alliance to End Hunger
Breakout Sessions, Round Two (10/13/2015 2:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.)
What comes to mind when you think of the word “advocacy?” Who is involved? What activities constitute advocacy? Who is an advocate? All of these questions may have broader definitions, implications, and applications than someone may think. Join the Alliance to End Hunger as advocacy is discussed on a personal, organizational, and community-wide level. Learn how you can do your own small or large part to advocate for a nation free from hunger, and explore a newly-released “Advocacy Playbook” that can help guide anti-hunger workers into anti-hunger advocates. This breakout session is appropriate for all levels of advocates, from beginners to seasoned, and will provide an opportunity for shared learning.
