At our interactive “Speed Date… To Legislate” event on January 24, participants honed their persuasion skills by engaging with multiple legislators and paid lobbyists—and listening to their feedback on how well they convinced them.

Each of our experts  represented a different legislative issue—from ballot initiatives to employment discrimination to hate crimes—giving participants the chance to practice lobbying on multiple topics as they moved around the room. After “speed dating” several topics, everyone came together to hear general feedback and participate in a Q&A session. 

This was an advanced, interactive lobbying training for those who are already familiar with the basics of lobbying or have previously attended a community lobby training.

Hosted by the ACLU of Utah, Alliance For A Better Utah, Black Lives Matter, Equality Utah, PANDOS, Planned Parenthood, and Utah Pacific Islander Coalition
