Ever wanted to make a difference - for your world, for your country or for your neighborhood - but weren't sure how to get started?

Feel a little intimidated at the idea of contacting an elected leader - whether your city council member, your state legislator or a Member of Congress?

Think it's impossible to gain the attention of elected leaders without sending them a big campaign contribution?

Well, think again.

Citizens in Action offers step-by-step guidance you can use to become a powerful advocate for your cause in Washington and legislatures across America. From how to get "face time" and tell persuasive personal stories, to presenting a consistent message - and making it stick - this concise book shows you how to join the ordinary citizens who are exerting extraordinary influence on laws, regulations, priorities, programs and money.
