Advocacy Guidance When Communicating with Decision Makers
Make it Personal and Keep it Positive
Tell them why SF Connected matters so much to you. What is something you’ve been able to do because of access to computers and new skills to use them? Have you been able to connect with friends or family? Find information about health issues? Stay on top of the news? Make new friends at the computer lab? Find activities or resources in your neighborhood you didn’t know about? How does this make you feel?
Share a Photo or Video! Your photo and story will make SF Connected more than an abstract program. The importance of SF Connected will become real and memorable thanks to you!
Make a Specific Ask. Tell them why you’re posting: to ask them to continue funding SF Connected and commit $750,000 annually beyond current baseline funding to strengthen and expand the SF Connected program that helps thousands of seniors and adults with disabilities access computers and trainings.
Keep it Short and Thank Them!. By keeping your message brief, it will be more memorable. You’ll be remembered even more if you thank the person for their public service and support of seniors and people with disabilities.
