Advocacy Project: Alliance for Background Checks in Youth Sports
Mariah Gayler, Laura Purdom, Debra Rogers, and Alicia Sebastian
The Alliance for Background Checks in Youth Sports is a coalition of individuals, organizations, government agencies, and community businesses who advocate on the behalf of our communities’ youth and sports programs.
ABC Youth Sports asked California State Legislature to join the ranks of other states in their efforts to protect our children, and our community sports programs. We called for a state-wide policy-- Safe at School, Safe on the Field --requiring all California youth sports league chapters to operate with the same background check requirements held by California public school sports programs.
Our campaign was based on Pat Libby’s, The Lobbying Strategy Handbook: 10 Steps to Advancing Any Cause Effectively (2012), and we have outlined this process here.
Breaking the Tire Cycle Advocacy Campaign
Benny Cartwright, Maureen Guarcello, Ben McCue, Jennifer Martin, and Adina Veen
WiLDCOAST, an environmental nonprofit on the United States-Mexico border has a program that focuses on the flow of used tires into California from Mexico was a huge burden on local communities. This program was the basis for this advocacy campaign which focuses on a legislative "fix" to "break the tire cycle," and reduce the associated economic, public health, and environmental impacts that these tires cause.
This project became state law.
