Cost: Free

The Atlanta Community Food Bank has an easy way for you to take action during Hunger Action Month in September. Join the Food Bank on September 6 to learn how to build relationships with elected officials and be a strong voice for the communities where we live and serve. Building these relationships forces us to get close to politicians in ways that may feel “prickly” – like hugging a porcupine. Brad Fitch, CEO of the Congressional Management Foundation will help attendees learn the best way to reach out to elected officials and participants will uncover: who Members of Congress and state legislators listen to; what congressional staffers believe are the most effective tactics for influencing undecided members of Congress; and how to conduct effective in-person meetings. Learn how to hug a porcupine!
