Center for Women in Politics & Public Policy sponsors veterans advocacy workshop

Oct. 29, 2019—Dallas—Veterans, reservists, active military personnel and their spouses are invited to learn how to become powerful advocates for their communities at a special workshop being held 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Nov. 9. The Center for Women in Politics & Public Policy at Texas Woman’s University is partnering with the Veterans Campaign and the MA in Public Leadership Program at the University of San Francisco to present “Advocacy 101” at the TWU T. Boone Pickens Institute of Health Sciences – Dallas Center. This is the first time the Veterans Campaign has offered this workshop in Texas.

At this workshop, participants will learn how to leverage their leadership skills and problem-solving abilities to be a force for change in civilian life.

State Senator Pat Fallon (30th District, Texas) will be the keynote speaker. Sen. Fallon was a cadet in the U.S. Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps and later served as a second lieutenant for four years, for which he was awarded the Air Force Achievement Medal. He will discuss his transition from the military to business to public service and what he learned along the way.

“Veterans Campaign was founded a decade ago to train veterans, active military members and spouses how to continue their service to our country by using their leadership skills in their communities,” said Nancy Bocskor, director of the Center for Women in Politics & Public Policy. “Participants also learn how to become advocates for themselves and for causes they care about.”

Registration for the day is $150 and includes all materials and lunch. TWU students receive a special discounted rate of $25 by using the voucher code TWUStudent when registering. Free parking is available at the TWU Dallas Center. Registration is required.

TWU serves 347 student veterans and 540 of their dependents. In addition, the university employs 51 faculty and staff who are veterans, and has been named a “Military Friendly School” for 10 consecutive years.

“Veterans Campaign is excited to partner with TWU, an institution with a strong record of supporting veterans,” said Seth Lynn, founder of Veterans Campaign.
