Stakeholder Advocacy Resources

The stakeholder advocacy toolkit incudes documents that are available to assist stakeholders in discovering best practices that have already been identified through the CGA, case studies describing legislative activities that have taken place recently in some states, a list of states that have current legislative activity indicated, as well as contact information for stakeholder groups that would be beneficial to engage in the process of building a legislative coalition with your state. 

If you would like to suggest additional resources or have general questions about the toolkit, please complete our brief questionnaire.  

Advocacy Resource Documents
