This book teaches students of social work and non-profit management how the government works and what they can do to effect change at the state or local level through lobbying. Social workers are very politically active and this book covers key skills taught in a policy practice course. The centerpiece of the book is a 10-step lobbying process that walks the student through important stages of lobbying. It lays out a clear, 10 point framework that helps students lobby effectively. It also provides a chapter on the 10 point process in action, which displays case examples of student projects from conception to implementation. Following the 10 point process the author also presents chapters on tax aspects of non-profits and the varying structures of such organizations. In addition the author includes chapters on budgeting, evaluation, and hiring and working with a lobbyist.
