Advancing Home Visiting Through Advocacy: The Ohio Story
Lynanne Gutierrez and Shannon Jones
This session provides a case study in the successful planning and execution of an advocacy strategy in a “red state” to advance evidence-based home visiting. While the science, research and innovation surrounding home visiting practices are integral to the field, the benefits ultimately cannot be actualized without statewide leadership prioritizing adequately resourced support of evidence-based home visiting. Cultivating the political will for this support requires a broad-based coalition of stakeholders engaged in strategic communication and advocacy with statewide policymakers. As this workshop demonstrates, strategies and messaging must reflect the political landscape of the state. This session should inspire and empower attendees to develop and mobilize around their own state strategy to advance evidence-based home visiting. (author abstract)
