I recently enjoyed the hospitality of Seacoast pro-lifers who asked me to join Rep. Kurt Wuelper to give a presentation about communicating with legislators. We covered social media, phone calls, letters, and the oldest social medium of all: one-on-one conversation.
Lots to unpack in that topic, for sure – and it was great to meet people ready to put into practice what they were hearing. I love working with pro-life Granite Staters who are ready to get involved in public policy or to sharpen the skills they’re already using.
The 2018 legislative session begins the first week in January, only seven weeks away. Get your communications toolkit ready. One important item to include: the state General Court web site (“General Court” is the formal name for our legislature, reps and senators alike). Head over to http://gencourt.state.nh.us.
Bookmark it. Study it. Find your reps on it. Poke around the site at your leisure and make yourself at home.
(And if I may be so bold, sign up for the emailed legislative updates I’ll be providing when the session begins.)
There’s more, but that’s a start.

It would be great to hear you at a future speech that I am able to attend.
I’ll be sure to post about future speaking engagements. Thanks!
Thanks so much for coming Ellen, it’s always refreshing to hear your down-to-earth presentations and advice that even the most novice among us can understand and relate to. If we even have a handful of folks more informed and aware of the whole “sausage making” process of bringing a bill into law, it will be worth it as they will tell friends and it will spread.
That’s the goal: spread the word, so more people contact their representatives. Thanks for all you do to encourage that.
