Welcome to The Primer!
For this episode, Curtis is joined by UPC writer Alex Cragun.
Government – it is a big and scary thing, right? Well, not so much if you know some of the rules and etiquette related to actually talking to policy makers. In this episode we teach you how to actually approach a legislator to ensure that your voice is heard. We throw in handy tips about how to dress, what to say, and how to be genuine. We also tell you that, yes, it is okay to ask questions because, frankly, people up on the hill want you to be involved.
Let us show you the ropes, and we hope you enjoy.
