Lobbying

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." 
The First Amendment of the United States Constitution

Lobbying is one of the oldest professions globally; people at all levels have used lobbyists as intermediaries between Kings, Queens, and even entire Empires. Our own First Amendment guarantees that all American citizens can “petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

“Grievances” is loosely defined here, which means that any person or organization can lobby policy changes, introduce or attempt to defeat a particular law, or even present an amendment to existing law. Lobbying work happens in our government at every level: local, state, and national levels are all involved in some way in lobbying activities.

What are some Examples of Lobbying Activities?

  • Research issues and curate recommendations 
  • Lobby policy changes with public interest groups to generate support 
  • Craft a strategic plan to meet with key members of Congress to present your issue
  • Encourage decision-makers to introduce business-friendly legislation 
  • Network and cultivate connections for future help with laws and legislations
  • Providing relevant business information and values to decision-makers when you are in their districts and among their voters
  • Partner with like-minded people and organizations to build coalitions
