Is your organization effectively influencing public policy? Are you getting the support you need from your elected officials? Does your organization primarily advocate their positions by paying someone else to lobby for you?If you’d like to build direct relationships with legislators and staff, leveraging the full power of your organization to maximize your public policy influence, a grassroots campaign may be what you’re looking for.
No one understands your goals and issues as well as you do so why not engage a strategy to utilize your own organization’s best resource, its people, to advocate your needs? No one communicates more effectively with a legislator than constituents.We base our construction of grassroots campaigns on the premise that an organized minority beats an unorganized majority every time.Together we’ll design and organize an advocacy program that fits your requirements and resources.
We can even help you manage your customized grassroots program, track its progress, make necessary adjustments and insure you meet your timetable. We’ll also assist with your review of specific “how-to” skills that might need sharpening and we’ll design practical training sessions to fill in any gaps. If you retain the services of a professional lobbyist we’ll insure a coordinated and mutually supportive effort.
