  • Process of determining policy campaign for collective action.
  • Organizer learning section on how to support the parents as they work together to form citywide, regional, or statewide parent organizations, or networks of parent teams.
  • Series of workshops (What is Policy? Working with the Media; How to Influence Policy Change, and more)
  • Parent Leadership Ladder to recognize accomplishments during Phase Three of COFI leadership training.
