- Have you ever wondered what it means to be an advocate for OAC?
- Are you interested in getting involved to make a difference, but you’re not sure how to get started?
- Do you want to learn more about OAC and the issues we fight for?
If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, we have the perfect resource for you. The Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) has just debuted a NEW online video series about the basics of OAC advocacy for anyone who wants to help our cause.
About the Video Series
“Advocacy 101: All the Ways You Can Make a Difference” is an 8-part video series that walks you through the basics of advocacy and how to get started with taking OAC ACTION. It explores themes and concepts like how to tell your personal story, drive legislative change, share OAC education and resources, tackle key issues in obesity and more.
The video series is also convenient and easy to navigate, as you can start, stop and move through it at your own order and at your own pace.
About Getting Involved
We hope that this new advocacy video series will help supporters find their place in the OAC’s fight to make the world a better place for individuals affected by the disease of obesity. The word “advocacy” can often feel intimidating, but we want to show how easy it is to be an advocate and all the different ways you can do it.
Remember, the OAC always needs advocates. Making change in the obesity space is hard, especially when we’re up against deep-rooted weight stigma and a general lack of understanding of obesity. No matter your experience level, skills or interests, we need your help to drive change and grow our impact!
