Legislative Advocacy 101

"I want to testify at a hearing but have no idea how to do this."
"When do I need to write my legislator? How do I even find out who my legislator is?"
"I'm coming to the capitol. Where do I park?"

We know legislative advocacy is new for a lot of people. We want to remove any anxiety caused by the unknown as we encourage you to get involved. We are developing MoDE Minutes, short minute long videos, to get rid of any guesswork so you can be confident as you advocate for legislation. If there is a topic you would like to see us cover, let us know. You are probably not the only one with that question. Beneath the MoDE Minutes is a link to our recent webinar entitled, "How a Bill Becomes a Law (and Why You Need to Know This to Advocate Effectively)."
