GUIDE: Advocacy 101 (How to lobby on the issues you care about.)

The best way to protect your civil liberties is to advocate for them directly. Your legislators need to hear about what matters to you, and it is always easier for them to defend your rights if they can understand how the bills they consider affect their constituents. The info here will help you understand how lobbying works and how you can advocate effectively for the issues you care about.

NOTE: Because the RI General Assembly is meeting remotely this session (2021), there are special procedures in place for the public to testify.  Please check out Advocacy 101: Testifying Remotely (During COVID-19) for more info, and keep this in mind when reading the other Advocacy 101 guides.
