  •  Learn how to lobby Congress from home! Join Poughkeepsie Friends and Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) staff to learn the ins and outs of preparing for and conducting a virtual lobby visit. This training prepares your group to lobby elected officials in the manner of Friends in our online era. Facilitators Bobby Trice (Quaker Outreach Coordinator) and Emma Hulbert (Program Assistant for Quaker Outreach) will present an update on voting rights legislation and FCNL’s current legislative ask on the Freedom to Vote Act (S.2747). We will then accompany Friends through the lobby visit planning process using FCNL’s Virtual Lobby Visit Roadmap and invite Friends to practice roleplaying their planned lobby visit(s) on the same issue. We’ll close with next steps for scheduling a lobby visit with Friends’ members of Congress and other opportunities to continue engagement and collaboration with FCNL in faithful witness for the world we seek.
