This month is all about gearing up for in-district meetings with lawmakers, so that we can build relationships and explain why we need good solutions to housing instability and homelessness before the legislative session begins! That way, come January, we can hit the ground running.
- Friday, August 3, noon-1pm: Join us for a training on Telling Your Personal Story with Reiny Cohen, communications director for the Washington Low Income Housing Alliance. Personal stories have a lasting impact on lawmakers – learn how to use yours to create change! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP and get the link to join the webinar.
- We held a RAP Messages That Work training to learn how and what to say to lawmakers to help them better understand the need for policy changes. This messaging training was led by Michael Anderson from the Center for Community Change. If you weren’t able to join, no problem! Check out the RAP Messages That Work slides here.
- We held a “Successful Strategies for Lawmaker Meetings” training led by none other than the Housing Alliance’s Director of Policy and Advocacy: Michele Thomas! During this training, we learned the skills to meet with lawmakers and lobby for all of the housing changes that you want to see. If you weren’t able to join, check out the Successful Strategies on Lawmaker Meetings slides here.
