Lobby Locally: Fighting PH through District Visits

June 15, 2011

When PHers meet face-to-face with Members of Congress, we make a BIG impression and get great results for the PH community. This webinar featured PHA’s Washington Representative, Gavin Lindberg, in a discussion about meeting face-to-face with senators and representatives near where you live. PHA advocates who have visited face-to-face with their Members of Congress in the past will also be on hand to share tips and advice.
