Advocacy for What Matters (to You)

Ever wonder how to get in front of your elected officials and successfully bring your agenda to life? This session is a crash course in meeting with elected officials with clarity, confidence, and your agenda. Attendees will focus on the process, practice, and simple tools to support your work in your community. Bring your ideas, pitches, or sketches of what you and your community want/need, and we will talk in real terms and real time about how to get on the agenda and get results. This session will cover how to find who to speak with, how to get on their calendar, how to frame your ask, and how to close (aka how to get what you want/need).
