How to Lobby

NEA-Alaska's members play an important role in building support for good public education legislation. Face-to-face meetings with your legislators and their staffs are especially valuable, and can be held in your legislative district or the capital. Virtual meetings are another potential way to connect with lawmakers.

Your stories and experiences are the most powerful tool we have. Sharing them can galvanize, warn, and persuade in a way facts, numbers, and statistics do not. Here are some tips on how to proceed.
