Feedback form is now closed.
Participants will learn how to explain legal as constituent sevices to legislators and their staff.

Now that many LSC-funded programs and other legal aid programs have begun to develop relationships with their federal and state legislators and staff, we want to indentify ways to build on and expand those connections my messaging to different audiences.

One way to do that is to coordinate legislative and media outreach efforts, and focus on the issues of local concern. The workshop will also address compliance with LSC lobbying restrictions applicable to LSC grantees in communicating with legislators.
