Check out Washington Nonprofits’ Build A Movement! Public Policy Toolkit
Build A Movement! invites you and your colleagues to take action on policy issues that matter to your mission. In its purest form, government is intended to represent the will of the people. This toolkit will support you as you build a movement of people and policy that propels your work to the destination you envision for your organization. “Raising the roof” refers to the tradition of barn-raising—working together to achieve things we can’t do alone.
