State Advocacy

Opportunities to advocate range from local school boards and zoning panels to state legislatures.  These policy-makers are, in many cases, citizen lawmakers who practice diverse professions outside their statehouse duties.  While congressional and presidential politics draw much attention, the actions of state and local governments have more direct bearing on our lives and work.  For information to help you with your advocacy efforts, please visit our Advocacy Resources page. To learn more on how you can become an advocate, please visit our Key Contacts page.
