Storytelling for Change: Bringing Our Lived Experiences to Congress 

July 12, 201912:00 pm12:50 pm
This workshop will focus on the power of story-centered lobbying. Politicians have their talking points, but they cannot deny our experiences, so how can we connect our stories to policies being voted on to impact our lawmakers? We will build up the power of communicating the real, human impact of polices as opposed to impersonal data and theoretical arguments. We will explore the new and vital perspective that we each bring to our elected representatives. This workshop is led by staff of NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice who will share best practices and lessons learned from more than 40 years of story-centered lobbying.
