A panel discussion focusing on various advocacy strategies used with and against various mayoral administrations over the past few decades. Panelists will be invited to share the strategies and tactics used to accomplish advocacy goals in various local political climates—for example, litigation in state and federal court, or attempts at more informal grass roots advocacy. The panel will provide an opportunity for attorneys and advocates to learn about different forms of advocacy, when they are best used, and how to adjust tactics and strategies in a shifting political landscape. The panelists will speak from their experiences advocating in the social welfare and government benefits space, but the lessons learned by the panelists are applicable in a variety of subject matter contexts.
