How to be heard by your government: Using the traditional tools of letters and
postcards, we will discuss ways of expressing oneself on paper to effect policy
change. We will focus on how to lobby for or against specific issues clearly and
with purpose, without attack or blame. In any communication with a government
official, we will discuss the importance of referencing factual information, where
to find it, and the power of a personal impact statement. Bring paper, pen, and
postcards and be prepared to write. Resource sheets listing to whom and where to
address your concerns will be available. This event is free and open to the public.
