Advocacy Toolkit: Connecting with Elected Officials


This toolkit provides a how to guide to engaging and educating elected officials on environmental justice and water policy. Interacting with your elected officials is a great way to build relationships and learn where a member stands on a specific policy issue. Think of engaging with your Members of Congress as an opportunity to tell your story and showcase the work that you are doing – describe your work as an advocate or local leader, the community you work in, and share what your organization’s policy priorities mean to your community.
