A Legislative Advocacy Toolkit is now available from the Council. The toolkit provides a wealth of information for people of faith who want to be effective as grass-roots lobbyists, especially with the state’s General Assembly. Information includes how to register and vote, how to get information on a bill, how to contact your legislators (and how to find out who they are), and more. It is the perfect companion piece to Raleigh Report, the Council’s legislative newsletter.
Megan Loughlin Nerz, the Council’s Volunteer for Legislative Advocacy, has created the toolkit, based on her years of experience as an advocate, including her time with the Franciscan Coalition for Justice and Peace, Raleigh.
