Grassroots Networks


Grassroots Networks & Campaigns

If you’re looking to build an advocate network, rejuvenate your existing effort, develop a campaign around a policy issue, or just need a helping hand, Advocacy Associates can help.

Creating Networks

Successful policy campaigns are anchored by successful advocacy networks. Whether you’re transforming your members or employees into advocates or building a network from scratch, we have the tools and resources you need to be effective on the federal, state, or local level.

Our advocacy network services can help you maximize your advocacy investments and build a lasting network of dedicated and passionate advocates. We’re so good,  we even wrote the book (available as part of the Grassroots Advocacy Best Practices Course from Columbia Books).

Mobilizing Networks

The most well-intentioned and well-trained advocates can still fall short if you don’t have an effective strategy for mobilization. Whether you’re launching a comprehensive, long-term campaign or if you’re looking for a “911 mobilization strategy” to react to events in Washington, Advocacy Associates knows how to translate your advocates’ enthusiasm into results. We specialize in facilitating advocate communications to ensure that your members are connecting with their elected officials at a time when the message has the greatest impact.

Our mobilization services include:

  • Strategies for identifying and reaching out to your most effective potential advocates

  • Action alerts, toolkits, and policy briefs to make the process easy for your advocates
