Join Alana Westwood, Atlantic region organizer and volunteer coordinator for Evidence for Democracy, for an interactive workshop hosted by the Parkland Institute.   

The workshop will address topics including different styles of advocacy and their effectiveness, and the critical differences between science advocacy and traditional advocacy. From sharing through social media to large-scale creative actions, there is a way for everyone to get involved to help protect science and information--the cornerstone of a healthy democracy in Canada.
