Capitol Gains: Traditional vs. Movement-Building Approaches to Legislative Advocacy

Western States Center believes a movement-building approach – values-driven and led by the community who is affected by the issues – can transform legislative organizing into an experience that builds leadership, community, and grassroots power.

Capitol Gains: Traditional vs. Movement-Building Approaches to Legislative Advocacy

Capitol Gains

Western States Center believes a movement-building approach – values-driven and led by the community who is affected by the issues – can transform legislative organizing into an experience that builds leadership, community, and grassroots power. Capitol Gains was developed in 2011 as a tool to think through how we can do our work differently than traditional lobbyists and legislative organizers. We have also included a framework for thinking about movement-building even we’re playing defense.

 

We encourage you to use this as a conversation starter; to adapt and share the tool; and to give feedback and share with us your movement-building experiences.
