Forming a Team or Committee
In the Spokes program, we emphasize the importance of committees and public input. Most advocacy work begins with a single person becoming passionate about an issue and then recruiting like-minded folks to assist in the effort. If you can create a group to help in your efforts, you greatly multiply your effectiveness.
