While overall advocacy numbers have skyrocketed over the past several years, there is little evidence that advocacy is bringing voters and legislators in closer communication or led to better or more citizen involvement in decision-making.

Shayna and Stefan Hankin of Lincoln Park Strategies will be previewing the advocacy research underway and leading a discussion of the implications for grassroots professionals.
