Do you want to lobby for the public good?

Lobbying for the Public Good: A Workshop on Making Change Happen

Come learn time-tested techniques for persuading decision-makers at the local, state, or federal levels. Whatever social justice issue you are passionate about, this training will offer concrete skills for you to put to use to make change. Our trainers are current Wagner graduate students with extensive lobbying and campaign organizing experience. Rachel Ackoff has trained hundreds of young people on lobbying skills over the past decade since she first lobbied herself as a high school student. Most recently, she has worked for the Sierra Club as a lobbyist in Washington, DC. Elizabeth Buck has experience lobbying congressional staffers on federal housing policy. Most recently, she was a leader in volunteer recruitment for Congressman Sestak’s US Senate campaign in Pennsylvania, successfully recruiting and directing several hundred volunteers.
