ADVOCACY IN A TRANSITIONAL 2021

W143: ADVOCACY IN A TRANSITIONAL 2021

Course Description

The first year of a new Session of Congress is typically a critical time for advocacy networks.  There are new Members of Congress to meet (and bring up to speed), priorities to establish, and legislation to re-introduce (with co-sponsors to re-up).  Amidst the transitional winds of the pandemic, flexibility and creativity have become strategic imperatives. Invisibility is not an option.
In 2020, Soapbox Consulting conducted 5,074 virtual meetings with Members of Congress and 6,704 advocates.  Best practices emerged around technology, training, scheduling, and messaging.  Yet things are changing again as people begin to get immunized and congressional offices, each managed separately, are making decisions about how they will interact with their constituents in 2021.
Join Christopher Kush, MPP, CEO of Soapbox Consulting, and Author of The One-Hour Activist (Wiley), for a discussion of the emerging advocacy considerations that have begun to surface in 2021.
