Choose an Issue

Your team will need to come to concensus on which issue you wish to focus your advocacy efforts. This process may take some time to complete and will inform your efforts and goals. Be sure that the whole team will dedicate their time and resources to this issue to avoid unnecessary conflict.


  1. Brainstorm issues that are compelling and pertinent to the team. There are no bad suggestions when brainstorming, you will distill ideas later.
  2. With the brainstorm results handy, choose one to three issues from among the list. Note any connections or overlap if you choose multiple issues. Can multiple issues be consolidated?
  3. Post the chosen topic(s) and conceptual outline to your team workspace for reference.
  4. Using this discussion page, share the results of your work with this study group.
