Episode 1: Lobbying versus Advocacy

Welcome to the first episode of the What Would Alice Paul Do? Podcast!

In this episode, we talk about the difference between advocacy and lobbying. Lobbying is about supporting or opposing specific legislation.  Tips include having facts with you so they can be shared and taken back to convince other legislators join in.  The cost of these activities are usually covered by a League of Women Voters "general funds" (a.k.a. 501c4 money).  Advocacy include educational opportunity to gain awareness around an issue. Activities can include forums on topics the community cares about. Funding for this type of activities are typically covered by tax-deductible funds (a.k.a. 501c3 money).
