Lobbying 101

March 6 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

MountainTrue is proud to co-sponsor this workshop put on by Democracy NC. In our current political climate, the term lobbying is kind of a dirty word, often associated with big money, special interests and backroom deals. But there’s another way to look at it. Lobbying is one way a group of people with shared policy interests or goals can influence, persuade or pressure elected officials to support our ideas. If we want to build power in our communities, lobbying should be one tool in our organizing toolkit. Come engage with us around what lobbying is and how we can use it to win on issues we care about.

This event is co-sponored by MountainTrue, the Asheville-Buncombe NAACP, Children First Communities In Schools, Just Economics, and the YWCA of Asheville. Please RSVP here.
