2019 NASWGA Social Work Advocacy Day
One of the most effective ways of letting elected official know your views on issues is through a personal meeting. In political terms, this is called lobbying. Lobbying provides members of Congress, state legislatures, and city council people with the information they need to make the best decisions for their constituencies.
Elected officials take heed to mass numbers— When a group of people from an elected official’s district requests a meeting regarding a particular issue, the elected official wants to hear their point of view. Most elected officials want to make sure that they understand the consequences and benefits of any particular piece of legislation on their constituency.
