Capitol-Based Relationships & Advocacy Days
Securing a legislative meeting for a constituent is not always an easy task. On average, getting on the calendar at a legislative office takes six phone calls and/or emails. That's why so many meetings fall through the cracks and why so many Government Relations departments come to a screeching halt in the weeks before a fly-in or advocacy day.
A Soapbox Advocacy Day not only frees your staff from the chaos of securing the meetings, it provides a professional-level service to your advocates that communicates to them that you take their advocacy seriously.
Soapbox Advocacy Days include:
- All appointment scheduling
- Weekly reports and updates
- Individual schedules for attendees
- Master schedules and master rosters for event organizers
- Interactive Capitol Hill Preparation training
- On-site help desk.
- The Soapbox Advocacy Day App
We can also help you prepare your participant and leave behind folders.

Legislative Appointments & Personalized Schedules
Individualized schedules give every Advocacy Day participant a sense of personalized attention. Soapbox schedules individual legislative meetings based on the addresses, service areas, or the existing relationships of your event participants. We can also help you identify, recruit for, and request appointments with your representatives from key committees.
Interactive Capitol Hill Preparation (Advocacy Training)
Soapbox's unique Interactive Capitol Hill Preparation (Advocacy Training) compliments your issue briefing. We help each participant develop their local information and build confidence while stressing the importance of staying on message. Our Hill Preparation includes a thorough explanation of Hill logistics and addresses all questions related to the schedules.
