The One Thing That ALWAYS Works in Getting Policymakers to Listen [video]

The One Thing That ALWAYS Works in Getting Policymakers to Listen
from ALA Washington on Vimeo.

We reveal the secrets to getting policymakers at all levels — whether your local city councilperson, a state legislator or a member of the U.S. Congress — to take libraries seriously. If you’re looking for more funding, a better policy environment or just a little positive attention, this is the session for you!

We outline the differences between being heard and being agreed with and how you can move policymakers from one side to the other. We also look at five critical steps to capturing the attention and support of your policymakers that are effective either as a follow-up for attendees of the ALA Legislative Advocacy Day rally or as stand-alone efforts to boost awareness. Attendees will come away from the session with a concrete plan for moving forward on core relationship-building activities.

Jacob Roberts is the communications specialist for the ALA Washington Office.
