COH 435 AU Coalition Testimon

Each individual will be assigned to a coalition with the goal of addressing a public health issue and policy. The coalition that each person is assigned to will be connected to a specific advocacy/policy issue reviewed in the text. The assignment approximates coalition work, which is a mainstay for public health advocacy.

Each student will represent a pre-selected advocacy coalition in order to address a public health problem and advocate for a policy solution.

Each student will represent a stakeholder agency/organization that is listed as a member of the assigned coalition (see link to the website provided below).

  • For example, the Southern AIDS Coalition consists of several organizations: Latino Commission on AIDS; AIDS Alabama; Crescent Cares; Tennessee Department of Health; and Louisiana Office of Public Health.
  • Each student will select and become a member organization (for example, student one represents/becomes the Latino Commission on AIDS and student two represents/becomes Crescent Cares).

Coalitions often prepare testimony for public hearings in order to ensure their key messages are voiced and presented to policymakers. Each coalition member organization has a slightly different perspective, but all the messages are intended to influence the policy making body to adopt a specific policy. Each coalition group will develop a presentation of coordinated public testimony to convince policy makers to adopt a policy.

The coalition testimony assignment is completed as a individual
