How to Engage with Congress During the Coronavirus Outbreak
Organizer: Congressional Management Foundation
Research conducted by the Congressional Management Foundation proves that in-person meetings with constituents have more influence than other advocacy tactics, but what should citizen advocates do while the Coronavirus outbreak mandates that everyone, including Congress, limit their exposure to others? This webinar will unpack results from the only survey of congressional staff conducted during the COVID-19 crisis. Participants will explore the following questions:
- How has Congress transitioned to remote work?
- How has remote work effected how congressional offices operate?
- What are the best ways to engage with Congress during the crisis?
- Should advocates limit their advocacy to issues related to COVID-19?
