Just how powerful and influential is grassroots advocacy? Our teleconference guest speaker this month, Sam Daley-Harris, will share examples of organized citizen lobbying that had a major impact on national policies and priorities. Sam is the founder and CEO of Civic Courage, a non-profit that coaches organizations to improve the effectiveness of their advocacy work. In 1980, he founded RESULTS, an organization working to end hunger and poverty, which later became the model for Citizens’ Climate Lobby. Sam is also the author of Reclaiming Our Democracy: Healing the Break Between People and Government.

 

You’re invited to stay afterwards for our monthly chapter meeting (2-4pm), where we will make plans for future climate advocacy and outreach.
