Lobbying 101

Posted By on Fri, Jan 28, 2011 at 2:17 PM


According to the Tennessee Equality Project (TEP), Representative Stacey Campfield's "Don't Say Gay" bill will make a comeback in this General Assembly.

Be prepared to fight Campfield's push to ban talk of homosexuality in schools and other anti-gay legislation with the "Lobbying 101" workshop on Saturday, January 29th from 10 a.m. to noon. The event — hosted by the University of Memphis Law School's OUTLAW group and TEP — will focus specifically on lobbying during Tennessee's 107th General Assembly.

Attendees will learn how to research and track bills, how to handle meetings with elected officials, and how to advocate on behalf of legislation. The workshop will be held at the University of Memphis Law School in room 226.

For more information, see the workshop's Facebook page.
