Advocacy Tools

The Alliance has developed a number of tools to help make your federal advocacy efforts more successful. These resources will teach you the skills and strategies for communicating effectively with your Senators and Representatives.

The toolkits featured below include the key information you will need to launch a successful federal advocacy program by offering guides on how to invite Members of Congress to visit your program, build relationships with Members of Congress, and other key steps. For talking points, sample letters, sample emails, and one-pagers on specific topics, please see the individual advocacy campaigns and/or the Legislative Updates section.

If you can’t find the information you’re looking for or you have questions, contact Kate Seif at the Alliance.
