Ethical Lobbying: Really, it's Possible!

If you’re based in the Washington, DC area and you haven’t signed up for the January 27th forum on grassroots ethics being held by the George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management, what are you waiting for? Take a minute to go to and get registered for this free event! Go ahead, I’ll wait.

OK, you may be thinking “but ethics sounds really boring: why would I want to go to that?” Well, there’s a whole host of reasons! You should attend if:
  1. you’re tired of snide comments about “all the corruption in Washington, DC” – and you want to be part of the solution.
  2. you want to network with others engaged in grassroots advocacy activities – we have sponsors from all walks of life!
  3. you want to learn more about techniques that work in grassroots advocacy – after all, what is most ethical is also most effective.
  4. you want to make your mother proud by learning more about honesty, transparency and all the things that make us good people.

At the event, we’ll be discussing a proposed grassroots advocacy code of ethics. You can see the code and comment on it when you register at This is your opportunity to shape these ideals for generations to come – so don’t delay. Register today!
