Lobbying - A 'How To' Guide

Writing a Letter

Non-profit organisations rely greatly on mail campaigns to gain political support. Whether you are organising a mail campaign or writing just one letter, it is important to keep in mind that there are many lobby groups clamouring for attention, so give careful thought to your letter.

Effective use of research can help you convey your position to politicians, the public and members.

Credible data can complement personal stories and anecdotes about your cause, thereby making your point more convincing.

Gathering research and pulling out the important points that support your position, as well as points that negate the argument of those who oppose your position, will help you to gain supporters for your cause.

Know the Legislative Process & Players

  1. A bill is introduced in at least one chamber of the legislature.
  2. It is then assigned to the committee(s) that oversees the issue addressed by the bill.
  3. Sometimes, a committee refers a bill to a subcommittee for deeper consideration.

Make a Personal Visit

Politicians want to hear from you. The first time you meet your politician face to face, you may be nervous. Keep in mind, however, that politicians and their staff people repeatedly say that the information non-profits provide is important to their decisions, so don’t be afraid to voice your message.

Vol Assisted Dying Bill discussion paper The Vic Andrews Govt has released a Discussion paper on its proposed Euthanasia Bill asking Victorians to help design the death bill! Prof Brian Owler, Chair-Ministerial Advisory Panel stated “… the panel will not consider feedback that expresses an opinion for or against assisted dying.  The panel asks for "feedback based on people's" expertise and experience to provide perspectives on the access, safeguards and practical considerations in creating a compassionate and safe assisted dying framework". Obviously the views of those "experienced" in the detail of killing patients are being sought but those who oppose the killing are excluded.  Express your opposition to the design of the killing programme! It is the next step in the deadly process. Send an email to the Panel by Mon 10 April 2017 to <Assisteddying.frameworkresponses@dhhs.vic.gov.au>    Contact your MP and tell him/her you oppose the design of a bill which kills Victorians.  Email us for contact details.
