Ever wanted to make a difference for your world, for your country or for your neighborhood but weren t sure how to get started?
Feel a little intimidated at the idea of contacting an elected leader whether your city council member, your state legislator or a Member of Congress?
Think it s impossible to gain the attention of elected leaders without sending them a big campaign contribution?
Well, think again.
In Citizens in Action, Stephanie Vance, the Advocacy Guru, takes the controversial position that it is possible to get heard on Capitol Hill, that not all politicians are corrupt (OK, a few are), and that citizens can get things done from Washington, D.C. to their city council. Vances tips and advice are helpful whether you are just getting started on an advocacy effort or have been trying to lobby elected officials for years.
