Federal Budget Toolkit: Resources

Webinar: Using Communications to Put a Face on the Federal Budget Cuts (recording)

Liz Banse from Resource Media reviews how the media has covered the proposed federal budget cuts to date and the opportunities this presents in getting our message out. She also gives advice on persuasive messaging and how to tell effective stories. Anna Brunner and Jordan Lubetkin with the Healing Our Waters Coalition also share how they’ve documented the benefits of federal investment and successfully communicated those benefits to protect investments in the Great Lakes.
