Why Lobby?

Congressional staff say
as few as 10 letters or emails from constituents can make a difference. The
impact is even greater if you begin to climb the ladder of congressional
engagement by raising your issue in a letter to the editor in your local
newspaper or even meeting with the local staff of your members of
Congress.

Want to know the key
steps in being an effective citizen lobbyist? Join us at Poppa Rollo's January 12th.
