You know that lobbying, writing letters to the editors, and emails to elected officials can influence what government does. Increasingly, though, Friends and those who share our concerns aren’t just lobbying for change – they’re making it themselves, by seeking elected office themselves.
Join us in conversation with two of these Friends: Jasmine Krotkov, a state representative in Montana; and Michael Snarr, a member of the Wilmington City Council (OH).
What led them to run for office? How do they approach their role as Quakers and stay faithful to their own leadings as well as their responsibility to their constituents? How has their experience being lobbied affected their own advocacy? And how can you engage with people seeking office and current office holders in your community right now to elevate the issues of concern to you?
