  • Description

PHI's state advocacy toolkit, reframed as a "practical resource guide," was drafted and designed in fall 2022 and released for national dissemination in February 2023. The guide includes 20 concrete strategies, based on lessons learned from the "Essential Jobs, Essential Care" initiative and organized across five dimensions of advocacy: strategizing, designing, persuading, advocating, and evaluating. Each strategy includes specific steps and key resources. Advocates can read the guide a whole, or sample individual strategies based on their needs and interests.
