Advocating On The Hill; Now That's What I Call Empowerment
CARE's 2008 National Conference brought out over 400 attendees to
Overall, my Pennsylvania delegation and I had a total of 5 meetings. The last one was with House member Allyson Scwhartz, who represents the 13th District in Pennsylvania. In this video, she is surprised to learn that her district has over 2,000 CARE supporters, which makes it the 3rd largest represented CARE district in the state. She was receptive and kind, and assured us we had a friend in that office.
When walking the halls of the Hill buildings, you run into various groups lobbying for various issues. It can be a little overwhelming, especially as a group leader. But, when you go into the office and sit with a member or their staff - nerves disappear and passion strength, and confidence take over. That is a little something I like to call EMPOWERMENT.
