Hi there, and thanks for visiting.
Here you will find a free 12-step guide to becoming a citizen lobbyist or activist.
Trust me–the first time that I went to a legislator’s office or made a phone call, I was nervous! But now, I’m excited to do it and can’t wait for the next opportunity. While special education and disabilities are near and dear to my heart, the steps that I share with you can be used for any cause. Along with the advice, each section includes a few homework exercises to help you learn and advocate.
This project has been in the works for quite some time, and I am delighted that it finally all came together.
- Finding your passion
- Becoming informed about legislation
- Civics 101 – Understanding legislation types and stages
- Should you start your own non-profit?
- Your first legislative visit
- Recovering from burnout
All this and much more.
If you want your hand-held while you learn to do this, this is the course for you. If you like to work at your pace and on your own, this is for you.
I am presenting this as a workshop on a limited basis in the Philadelphia area. Contact me for details.
Sign up with your email address. You will receive the course as it is published, approximately one unit every 3-4 days, as well as periodic bonus material.
