April 6, 2009 is ”Lobby Your MLA Candidates Day”!
Join British Columbians across the province on April 6th, and let your MLA candidates know that you have signed the Open Letter for poverty reduction in BC and want to vote for someone ready to make the same commitment.
Tips for effective lobbying:
- Find out who your local candidates are from all parties (Liberals, NDP, Green)
- Call candidates ahead of time and set up a meeting for April 6th
- Speak from your own experience and prepare questions ahead of time (download Q&A)
- Visit their office, on your own or with a delegation, and bring a copy of the Open Letter
- Be creative, think of something symbolic to bring with you, or get a picture of you and your candidate and post it on Facebook
- Let your local media know about your meeting
