Citizen Lobbyist Training Hosted by Colorado Senior Lobby

Most people think that the only way to be politically engaged is to vote or run for office. These are important, but if want to really be in a position to inform and educate your 
legislators, and to advocate for issues important to you: we will show you the way.

As an individual citizen, your elected officials depend on you to provide input, to inform and educate them on issues of importance to you. Every legislator wants to do a good job, and to do good. If you ask them, they will all tell you they want your help - and maybe you did not vote for that particular official - it does not matter. We’ll show you how to help them most effectively.
