Macro Advocacy Project – Los Angeles

Los Angeles peers, sponsored by Project Return, Peer Support Network,  and CAMHPRO advocating at the Capitol. One picture is of a group of us after we visited Senator Jim Beall’s office, author of SB 906, the peer certification bill. 
 
The Los Angeles novice advocates participated in a Macro Advocacy Project that trained peers on advocacy skills. CAMHPRO consulted on this project. The project culminated in the group coming to Sacramento and advocating for the bills they selected to support.
The intention of the Macro Advocacy Project was to train individuals on the state legislative process and how to effectively promote and advocate for legislation.
