Welcome to ARRM's Advocacy Arsenal
Travel down the road of greater grassroots engagement with us
ARRM is committed to continuing our work impacting state policies by putting a human face on disability issues.
Effective grassroots organizing requires compelling issues/messages and people. While we don't have the deep pockets that other organizations have, ARRM has the issues and -- more importantly -- we have the people!
A strong and engaged base of grassroots volunteers is a concrete demonstration of our power.
This is what ARRM is doing with grassroots advocacy:
- We have created a mentor program for coaching and support;
- We have been increasing our effectiveness through technology, materials, and staff support;
- We integrate grassroots advocacy more prominently in existing events, trainings, communications, and conferences;
- We provide an ongoing menu of opportunities to get involved.
ARRM's grassroots strategies do not replace the direct lobbying we do or our communications and media efforts. But they do complement them, providing cover and support for ARRM's CEO Bruce Nelson up at the Capitol.
