Legislative Advocacy

As KTLA members, your influence is greater than you may suspect. Consider your personal connections in the following groups:

  • Community Organizations: Rotary, Kiwanis, schools, churches, and other groups with regular meetings often need guest speakers for their events. Volunteer for one if you're involved in any of these types of organizations.
  • Legislators: Connecting with your legislators via one-on-one meetings, phone calls, emails, "Eggs & Issues" or a coffee event, and social media are all great tools to help you convey the justice message to your legislators.
  • Family, Friends and Colleagues: Professional associations, networking circles and more are all good places to collaborate with friends and colleagues about the issues facing civil justice system today.
