When meeting with legislators, it is important to be prepared. For this reason, Alliance has provided some advocacy options for you to begin building your legislative experience in whatever ways you can, as well as some basic talking points and leave-behinds to help you educate policy makers, their staff, and the general community.


If you are a legislator visiting this page, welcome! Please contact our Lobbying and Government Relations Consultant, Emma Hudson, with any questions or requests.
