How to Build Effective Relationships with Your Members of Congress
"In-person meetings with your members of congress are the most effective way to influence policy decisions" according to a survey of hundreds of Congressional staff people by the Congressional Management Foundation.
In other words, change in Congress starts with you!
This practical, interactive workshop for faith-based folks will train you on how to do that. Led by Maiya Zwerling, the National Field Organizer for the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL), it will also include basic skills in working with the media.
Registration for this Workshop is now closed. If you have any questions, please contact Kitty Ufford-Chase at Stony Point Center at 845-786-5674, ext. 121.
Spread the word:
FCNL is a Quaker lobby in the public interest that seeks to promote just, peaceful and equitable policies in the U.S. government. FCNL's influence in Washington stems from the integrity and truthfulness of our arguments and the strength of our grassroots network.
From this workshop, an FCNL Advocacy Team (made up of people of faith, Quakers and non-Quakers) will be launched to join with the dozens of other Advocacy Teams working all over the country to advocate regularly on reducing Pentagon (military budget) spending and addressing the needs of the most vulnerable in our society. You don't have to join the Advocacy Team to attend the workshop, but after the workshop you will be invited to consider joining.
So please invite your friends and networks in Rockland and Westchester Counties to join you and register quick! Dinner for $15 will be available after the workshop and free childcare is available through the online registration. If you have any additional questions, please contact Kitty at Stony Point Center at 845-786-5674, ext. 121.
See you on Sunday, Feb. 19! ~ FCNL
