2022 NC Statewide Policy Institutes

The 2022 Statewide Policy Institutes will take place in two virtual sessions, on October 19 & 26, and will focus on the power of storytelling to achieve change and make an impact. This will be the third year of the Policy Institutes with the first year (2020) featuring 25 experts sharing the basics of advocacy. In 2021, 27 experts took participants on a journey through coalition building, local, state, and federal level policy. This year, we’re focusing on storytelling as a powerful tool that can influence policy decisions that benefit children, youth, and families. Below are the overall agendas for this year’s events, which will each be 3 hours long:


  • Welcome & Opening Remarks
  • Opening Keynote
  • Creative Element
  • Community Voice Presentation and Conversation
  • Open Discussion


  • Welcome & Opening Remarks, with Youth Keynote Speaker
  • Creative Element
  • Opening Keynote
  • Panel Discussion

We encourage child, youth and family advocates; Prevention Action Network members; and others interested in learning more about policy to attend the 2022 Policy Institutes.
