How To Organize A Town Hall Meeting

Here are step-by-step instructions for holding an effective town hall meeting, one way that your organization can use The Recovery Bill of Rights and the Recovery Voices Count campaign to mobilize and organize support for new attitudes and policies to support addiction recovery in your community.

For many years, town hall meetings have been an important tool to inform citizens about emerging issues, gauge where a community stands and identify and implement solutions to a problem. They are also a great way to get your message across to the public by generating news media coverage, jump start your local advocacy efforts and identify people who you can involve in your organization’s activities in the future.
