Must Have Materials for Statewide Lobby Days

On the surface of it, the idea seems simple enough.  Get a bunch of people concerned about HIV/AIDS policy to your statehouse and have them ask their elected officials to support a list of policy priorities.  Statewide lobby day – DONE.

If only it were that easy.

Anyone who has organized a statewide lobby day knows there are innumerable moving parts – among which are a whole slew of materials that need to be developed.  Here is a list of all of the materials AIDS Foundation of Chicago produced to pull off its recent HIV/AIDS lobby day in Illinois – the group’s tenth such event.
