Sniper Attack - My Personal Story

 

You know, one of the things I wanted to talk about is guns and not really gun safety, but the proliferation of guns. It's definitely on everybody's mind, particularly since Parkland, Florida and all the school shootings that we saw.

This is particularly germane to me because in another video I talked about the origin story of iLobby and why I got into how do we change laws, how do we improve things and how do we get more people involved in policy, which is a big step in making that happen.

Advocacy 102 - Why a Policy Framework Matters

 

You know, on another video I talked about writing the book, "How To Change A Law" which really gives individuals the knowledge and information that they need to begin to think about changing laws, but I also realized that a little bit later that we could do this in a smaller version and the smaller version was in this other small book called "Sway, How to Influence Politicians and How to Make Change and How to Get Things Done."

So I invite you to download these or you can actually get them on...

The Big Secret

Hi, I want to run you through a little thought exercise here so you can get an idea of what many people who are politically frustrated are trying to get done. So let me start here.

This is you, the voter, the average person, and what you want to do is you want to reach this person here and this person is the politician and obviously there are many problems getting to them and there's lots of obstacles in the way and there's many ways that people choose to do it that are not that effective,...

Changing Laws

ilobby policy politics Aug 03, 2018
 

Changing and writing a law is difficult. That's why we have a republic. What we effectively have done is delegated the laws that we want to make to our elected representatives and they do it for us.

But when they make laws that you may not agree with, it's really difficult to change or be involved or have an opinion or get something done. So the question becomes is it possible for the average person to be able to change a law?

And there definitely are cases where people do that and in some...

Hi, there were three things that are holding us back. It's apathy, access and affordability. For some who are really apathetic and think there's no point in trying to make a change, then it really doesn't matter. So for the rest of you who are looking at this and saying, wow, you know, access is the big problem and the question is...

access is a big problem. I mean, part of it is you don't know who to go to, what you need to say, how to get something changed, how to get a law moving forward,...

Hi, I wanted to share some of the recent comments and email and feedback I've received from people. I have one long one I'll start with, but what he says is well after going through a lot of information, he basically says, "I don't think people have it together well enough to be able to create a decent law." And my response to that is he's absolutely right. It takes a village to change a law. So the idea is you're not doing this alone, you're doing it with lots of other people in a crowd...

Hi, here are the six things that politicians want to know, whether you are presenting something to them, either in writing or as an op-ed or as a call into a radio show or you're calling their office. There's basically six things that are going to come up. And the first one is what's your issue?

Who Makes The Laws?

advocacy laws politics Jun 22, 2018
 

Who makes the laws? Well, politicians make the laws, lawmakers make the laws, they make them at the federal, state and local level, and that's generally how we think of it, but they don't do it really on their own. So they are informed by special interest groups, companies, trade associations, individuals who have a particular interest in getting something done, and that's what they do. Otherwise you might think that they just go to Congress and the state capitols and come up with ideas and...
