HEAL School of Political Leadership Application Deadline
The HEAL School of Political Leadership (SoPL) is seeking motivated and committed teams of 2-4 individuals who want to enhance their advocacy, organizing, and political leadership skills to champion food and farm systems that are healthy, accessible and affordable to all communities; fair and dignified for the hard working people across the food chain; and that protect the air, water, and land we all depend on.
Are you or someone you know interested in participating in SoPL and creating campaigns for inclusive, health food and farm systems?
HEAL’s expert trainers and guest speakers will teach the cohort strategies and skills to win campaigns (policy advocacy, organizing and electoral). Sessions will include but are not limited to the following:
- Power analysis
- Campaign strategy and development
- Field and Base Building
- Communications and Messaging
- Ethical and Accountable Leadership
- Political Advocacy
- HEAL’s Platform for Real Food
Due to the pandemic, sessions for the 2023 SoPL cohort will be virtual with the possibility of a final in-person session if conditions allow. We design sessions based on the unique goals, needs and realities of participants.
Throughout the course, team members will map institutional power systems in their own communities to assist in the development of their campaign plan. Teams will also learn to cultivate relationships with local media outlets to achieve a media placement such as an op-ed, press conference, or other event.
