Description
The Advocacy 101 toolkit is designed to provide you with a solid foundation and understanding of advocacy and how Congress works. Please take the time to read through the various resources and refer to them as you begin to advocate for PanCAN’s legislative priorities. Your involvement is critical – members of Congress want to hear from their constituents! You can also check out our Advocate in Your Community toolkit for more in-depth guides on how to engage with elected officials and build relationships without coming to Washington.
