Why Lobbyists?

Boots-on-the-ground lobbying is the best way to influence legislation in D.C., but everyday people do not have the same access to lobbyists as large corporations and wealthy special interest groups.

 

Our campaigns are started by individuals and raise money to lobby for causes important to the people.
