Legislative Advocacy (1)

This training provides an overview of the legislative process in Texas and covers the basics of legislative advocacy including simplified tips for lobbying as a non-profit organization and differentiating the ways in which advocates can effectively educate and inform policy makers on the issues critical to programs and survivors outside of the scope of lobbying. Presenters review the different types of laws created at the federal versus state levels and discuss the differences between law and policy, as well as interject ways to influence systems and practices outside of the legislative realm.
