Influencing Congress

David K. Rehr

How Congress is influenced by citizens and interest groups. The topic includes: ● How does Congress receive information? ● Where do Members and staff look for information? ● How do activist citizens leverage relationships with elected officials? ● Which special interest organizations exercise their power well? Which do not achieve results? ● What advocacy tools are generally used? ● What does the future hold for advocacy and how will changes impact our constitutional rights?
