Training Series: Understanding Technical Documents
Technical documents like test results, health studies, permits, maps, or legal briefings can be hard to understand.
But understanding these documents can make our work to protect our health and environment stronger, and it’s up to us to learn how to interpret and use them.
In Understanding Technical Documents, the next webinar in our virtual training series, we answer questions like: How can I understand technical documents? How can I make the data meaningful? How can I use this information in my campaign?
We talk about how campaigns have interpreted technical documents in their organizing and share some stories about how you can find or create the information yourself when there aren’t technical documents available.
In this training you’ll hear from Madeleine Scammell, DSc, Associate Professor of Environmental Health at Boston University School of Public Health with expertise in community-driven and community-based participatory research.
You’ll also hear best practices and stories from the ground from Shaina Kasper, Vermont & New Hampshire State Director at Community Action Works.
This training is the next in our Virtual Organizing Training Series. See all trainings.
