Topics covered will include: what's legal for 501(c)3 organizations, the difference between direct and grassroots lobbying, creative ways to make your message heard, the role media can play in advocacy campaigns, training citizen advocates, and how to be effective when your organization is not located near your state legislature or local government center.
