Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

To that end, we've put together this Advocacy 101 series with important information from our toolkit that we hope will serve as a resource for you as you navigate the world of parent advocacy.

Whether you are new to advocacy or a decades-long veteran in need of a refresher, this guide walks you through the foundation of advocacy work, to include best practices for effective communications with elected officials and decision-makers, social media, crafting your story, and maximizing your messaging.

This toolkit is meant to be used as you see fit. Each topic can stand on its own for those who want to pick and choose from these lessons, or the entire toolkit can be worked through in succession.

While advocacy will continue to evolve, we will aim to adapt these practices to the latest formats that lawmakers and decision-makers find accessible.
