Skills Training Workshop: Lobbying 101

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

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.

Co-sponsored by Democracy NC, Asheville-Buncombe NAACP, Children First Communities In Schools, Just Economics, MountainTrue, and the YWCA of Asheville. 

RSVP here.
