DCRCC recognizes that it takes the efforts of the entire community working together to make any real change. DCRCC strives to mobilize the community and build key relationships with individuals as well as partner organizations to power a culture of consent. DCRCC asks that each stakeholder in the sexual assault movement get involved in advocacy efforts. This may look like a call or letter to your legislators asking for specific policy requests. This mobilization may also include social media communications as well as other action-oriented alerts.
DCRCC is a resource that the local community can use to suggest local and state policy proposals. Our staff can assist in developing not only language for the proposal, but developing relationships with key legislators, and walking you through the process of “How to Lobby”.
What are Advocacy & Lobbying?
