Workshop: Winning Legislative Campaigns
June 14, 2011 @ 12:30 pm - 5:30 pm
The Institute’s Social Action & Leadership School for Activists presents this class to teach you the skills needed to turn policy proposals into law. Topics will include target mapping, vote charting, messaging, and lobbying. Students will get hands on training and constructive critiques through roleplays on news conferences, meetings with decision-makers, and more. Also, learn critical insider insights from an instructor who has successfully navigated the policy making arena for more than 15 years.
Steve Ma has worked on public-interest policy making on the local, state, and national level. He helped to pass the nation’s strongest telemarketing do-not-call law, several executive orders to improve long-term care, a landmark clean elections law, and trained citizens who successfully passed dozens of local ordinances to improve government accountability. Steve now runs Live Green, an organization working to build a new, thriving green economy.
