Seminar - Open to the Public

The Art of Advocacy

Wed., Apr. 24, 2019 | 12:15pm - 1:15pm

One Brattle Square - Suite 470

How can the power of citizen action make a real impact on public policy, from the local level to the global? Jim Shultz (Mid-Career MPA 1985) has been leading citizen action campaigns across the world for four decades and leads advocacy support projects on five continents. He has worked with indigenous communities in Bolivia, immigrant activists in California, health workers in South Africa and the global leadership of UNICEF.

Using two wildly different case studies – Resistance to Facial Recognition Surveillance Cameras in public schools in Lockport NY and the Water Revolt in Cochabamba, Bolivia – Jim will focus on how local citizen action can have a far wider impact.

Lunch will be served.
