How to approach a legislator, lawyer, judge, and any other important person in a legal case.

HAVE A 3 MINUTE, 5 MINUTE, 15 MINUTE SPEECH READY. MAKE YOUR WORDS COUNT. Someone messaged me asking about organizing Louisiana to approach legislation. Okay. Great! She said she had already talked to lawmakers, etc. Wonderful! Building relationships is important. Raising awareness and educating lawmakers and others about how the bills affect us is what we do. But when I ask questions about what she is talking to the lawmakers about and which lawmakers she feels like are open to working with us, I got nothing, “Thank you for your time”. ….. So idk what to think about that but messages come through all day and all night all of the time. I am not a mind reader and I do not know one. And this is why it is important to have a statement ready that gets attention. “I am talking with legislators”. That is a good attention grabber, but what legislators did you talk to about what? I have no idea who you are or what you are talking about unless you tell me. I know thousands of stories but not everyone’s. And this brings me to an important point that my grandfather taught me long ago, MAKE YOUR WORDS COUNT.
