SSDP Conference, part 7

A picture named SterlingEric.jpg
Eric Sterling (Criminal Justice Policy Foundation) started off the Sunday Advocacy Skills Training Day with a motivating talk to get students excited about being advocates.
A few of the points:

  • Write succinctly
  • Be entertaining
  • Don’t be too self-critical
  • Work as chapters to evaluate what you do
  • Share with others (passion, praise, respect)
  • Be persistent (bring it back up to the top of the in-box)
  • Ask for help
  • Talk to people who disagree with you

He says he had 11 points, so obviously I missed a few.
