Host A Letter Writing Party
Research has proven time and again that personalized messaging to lawmakers is the most effective form of advocacy. When your legislators are voting on new bills, it is important for them to have a personal story to connect to the issue. Storytelling is powerful because it humanizes an issue and opens up space for sympathy through individual testimony. Gather a few friends, and use this blog to get started!
