Anyone who's ever tried to change the system from within has had the same thought:

" I'm right! Why won't my Congressperson or Legislator listen to me?!"

It may surprise you to know that Congresspeople/Legislators, at times, have the same thoughts and frustrations regarding the people they serve.. So how can grassroots activists and other citizens break through that wall to really communicate with lawmakers & make a difference......especially when faced with "well-heeled" & powerful Special Interests?

Can It be done??? What works best...what doesn't?? Why? Tips you can use!

Laura Esquivel is an experienced lobbyist who knows that it often doesn't matter who is right but how to be effective. And how citizens can cope with the cynicism that comes from watching money influence the system often shuting out people who don't have millions of dollars at their disposal.

Laura Esquivel will offer helpful and hopeful strategies learned from years of lobbying experience. And she'll explain how "lobbying" doesn't have to be a dirty word.

Don't miss this chance to find out what you always wanted to know about the halls of power and the world of lobbying the people who walk them. Call in with your questions live at 856-227-1360.
