Connect Supporters with Local Elected Officials using Local Advocacy

Kyle Tharp

Change doesn’t just happen in Washington, DC. Across the country, state and local governments make meaningful policy decisions that affect nearly every issue - from preventing gun violence, to protecting the environment, or safeguarding LGBTQ rights.

That’s why we expanded EveryAction’s industry-leading advocacy tools to include Local Advocacy. EveryAction clients have already used advocacy forms to send hundreds of thousands of messages to federal elected officials. Now, we've made it easier for nonprofits to connect their supporters with county and municipal elected officials through the same easy-to-use email or social advocacy forms. 

Here's a glimpse at how it works:

Setting up a Local Advocacy form is simple and quick. Users create an Advocacy form in EveryAction the same way as if they are using email or Social Advocacy to target Federal Officials.

Finally, here's an example of what your supporters based in Washington, DC could see if your organization was targeting the Mayor's Office and City Council:
