Host Craig Price calls the Advocacy Hotline to talk to the guru, Stephanie Vance, about ways of getting our representatives to respond to our inquiries.
The question this week: You've filled out the online form, sent the sternly worded handwritten letter, the snarky yet direct email, the poignant passenger pigeon or just a note tied to a rock...yet for some shocking reason, you've yet to recieve a response! How can you get your representative to respond? How can you bypass their automated systems so you can schedule a meeting? How can you word your issue so they'll care??
If you have questions about politics, advocacy or influence be sure to email firstname.lastname@example.org. Also visit Stephanie's website http://www.advocacyguru.com to learn more about how you can be a more effective advocate or how you build long-term relationships with legislators and their staffs.
