  • Tribal employees working in climate change or climate health positions;
  • Public Health staff interested in tips for effective advocacy; or
  • Tribal advocates wanting to learn more about the need for advocacy in the Tribal environmental health space.

Learning Objectives
  • Describe how advocacy can lead to improvements in Tribal environmental health
  • Understand the basics of the federal legislative process
  • Develop skills in working with decision makers on Tribal environmental health issues in a nonpartisan manner.
