Have you heard the saying "all politics is local"?  Those famous words from former US Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill are just as true today as they were in the 1980s when he said it.  It means that elected officials are most influenced by the advocacy of those back home in their districts. 

So get local in your advocacy!  Town hall meetings, community conversations, input sessions, and candidate meet-and-greets are great places to advocate.  Our calendar can help you find a meeting near you! Click here for tips on attending a forum.

Meetings are planned without much notice & we can only show you forums for the next 3 weeks.
