As the year comes to an end and the public policy team reflects on our advocacy successes and lessons learned, we also took a look back and the Advocacy blogs posted over the past year to see which posts had the most views and garnered the most interest from our advocates. Among them were posts that:
* Explained the importance of advocacy (Building Jobs on Capitol Hill: What Goodwill® Does and How You Can Help).
* Asked for your input (Goodwill Asks What’s Important to You This Election Season).
* Touched on significant policy issues like employment (Amid Health Care Reform Debate, Let’s Not Forget About Jobs) and funding (Automatic Spending Cuts Threaten Resources That Help People Find Jobs).
We hope this blog serves as a way to educate and inform Goodwill® shoppers, donors, program participants and staff among others, about the hot topics affecting our agency and the people we serve. In the new year, we hope to continue to be a valuable resource to our stakeholders, garner more grassroots support, and advance Goodwill Industries’ legislative agenda. We would love to learn more about the types of information you would like to see on this page and how you feel you can be an effective advocate. Please take this short survey to give us your feedback.
