Although the capitol is normally a gathering place where nonprofit and community leaders advocate for policy change, COVID-19 has made it harder than ever before to have face to face conversations with Colorado’s elected officials.
While the pandemic hasn’t stopped some advocates and lobbyists from taking the risks of meeting with legislators - with masks on and social distancing required; many others are advocating effectively and safely from home.
With a phone, a computer, and Zoom, nonprofit and community leaders have carried on their work of influencing public policy. In many ways, it’s easier than ever before to meet with legislators virtually or testify at legislative hearing without being at the capitol.
Our panelists will share what they have learned in advocating from home including what’s worked and what hasn’t.
Also, we’ll discuss whether COVID-19 has resulted in lasting changes in how we connect with policymakers or to what extent things will go back to the way they were before the pandemic.
