Policy and Advocacy Workgroup

Philadelphia ACE Task Force Policy and Advocacy
The Policy Workgroup re-convened in August to kick off a second wave of work, and build skills and understanding of how policy is made. Guest speakers Duwayne Terry, Legislative Aide from Philadelphia Councilmember Derek Green's office spoke about the process of City Council and PA State Representative Christina Sappey spoke about the Trauma Informed Education legislation and steps for bringing work to the State Legislature. Group members worked on their own policy agenda proposals and discussed whether policy or a different advocacy approach was most effective for reaching their desired goals.  If you would like to get involved in PATF Policy work or have other questions or ideas, please contact philadelphiaacetaskforce@gmail.com.
