Please join your colleagues around the State and connect with your legislators to help engage them in the work of your CAC!
A team of Maryland Children’s Alliance Members and Staff have created a Strategies Toolkit in support of Legislative Advocacy Week, September 16-20, 2019. Designed to help you engage your legislators in the work of your CAC, the primary steps for Legislative Advocacy Week include:
1- Identify the Maryland General Assembly legislators that represent your jurisdiction.
2- Pick a date during Legislative Advocacy Week and create an event that will help legislators better understand the work of your CAC.
3- Invite your legislators to your CAC with a personalized invitation via email and the postal service. You can use the same letter to all legislators by personalizing the name, address, and greeting. Be sure to include details about the purpose and role of your CAC in your local communities.
4- Send an email invitation to Governor Hogan’s office. You never know where he’ll show up!
5- Follow up with your legislator’s staff to confirm their participation. Please visit the MCA website for resources and tools, including a sample invitation letter. MCA will be in contact with you over the next month to support you in this effort.
