Participants will leave this session understanding the nuts and bolts of lobbying—from writing legislative memos to building relationships with legislators, the Executive Chamber, and their respective staffs. We’ll delve into what nonprofits can and can’t do in terms of lobbying and advocacy. The webinar will also include a short role-play.

This is part 2 of 3 in the Effective Legislative Advocacy webinar series. This series will provide animal welfare professionals with actionable ideas to increase capacity to help animals through public policy. Public policy is a critical way to influence and impact animal welfare in the long term at local, state, and federal levels. These sessions will be location-generic though state-specific legislation will be used as examples.

This live and recorded program is approved for 1 Certified Animal Welfare Administrator continuing education credit.
