Influencing Undecided Lawmakers

by Amy M. on Tuesday, January 7, 2014

What is the best way to convince a Member of Congress to support or oppose legislation important to heart and stroke patients, and who is our best messenger? Is it the request of a professional lobbyist or the voices of their constituents that matters most to those lawmakers?

This second video in our series produced in partnership with the Congressional Management Foundation (CMF) gives you a look at the most effective strategies for influencing your undecided Members of Congress. You'll see why your action is so important to our efforts.
