This innovative class, taught in two sections, engages students in the advocacy process. Part one of the class, held in the fall semester, focuses on community engagement advocacy. Students collect stories and give presentations to help educate the public on the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid and other issues. In its first year, students collected close to 150 stories of ordinary Missourians’ experience with accessing health care. Part two focuses on the legislative/policy side of the grassroots movement, sending students to Jefferson City, Missouri, for lobby days, and providing opportunities to testify at legislative and administrative hearings as well as preparing witnesses to testify.
