      EVENT DETAILS
      Fellow Peter Roskam “Lobbying: Isn’t That a Dirty Word?” (Students Only, Off the Record)

      The First Amendment guarantees us the right to petition the government. Today, the scope and scale of influencing federal policy has taken on an order of magnitude that our Founders could never have contemplated. What are the most effective ways the public has used First Amendment rights to impact legislation? What and who have been the most effective constituencies? We will discuss this with an eye toward effective lobbying and organizing techniques and strategies to positively influence policy. This seminar is part of IOP Pritzker Fellow Peter Roskam's series, “So You Think Congress Needs Fixing?" This seminar is open to students only and off the record. Registration is required. However, seating is limited on a first come, first serve basis; capacity in the IOP Living Room is 45. Doors will open 30 minutes before the event begins. Any unclaimed seats will be released 10 minutes before the event begins. Please arrive early to claim your seat. If you can no longer attend, please cancel your ticket order on Eventbrite so others may register. This venue is physically accessible and has gender-neutral restrooms.
