What is Legislative Advocacy?
Simply put, legislative advocacy can be described as efforts to influence the introduction, enactment and/or modification of legislation. Generally, legislative advocacy takes the form of direct lobbying, which involves contacting a legislator, sharing your views on an issue and requesting that lawmaker to vote a particular way on a legislative proposal. This can be accomplished in one of three ways…via phone, letter or an official meeting with a legislator.
