Advocacy Council

The Advocacy Council is a leadership training program, focused on sharing strategies and knowledge from experts to support the development of civic engagement and self-advocacy in communities across Chicago.

This program aims to lift up and encourage women (Councilmembers) who have been affected by breast cancer to advocate for themselves and others. After the initial training and with the support of Equal Hope staff and partners, Council members set out to lead advocacy workshops and focus groups within their own community.
