Asking the Legislature to meet the needs of your local community is one of the constants of public service. Building on students’ knowledge of the ABCs of lawmaking, this seminar maps the paths to changing a law or funding a program.
With the goal of developing each student’s own skills in organizing legislative advocacy efforts, the seminar explores the various routes to influence legislation and budgets in a world of limited resources and multiple, competing priorities and interests. Case studies and two guest practitioners inform each student’s own design of an advocacy campaign meeting a current priority need.
