The Clinic – Episode 3: Early Stages of Coalition Building

This week on The Clinic, we speak again with Keri and Michelle about the bill they are working on with Asm. Brian Maienschein, AB 1784. This episode concentrates on the process of finding support – both inside and outside of the Building – for their bill.

Keri and Michelle talk about how they approach special interest groups as well as the advocates for the policies they are working to improve. They speak about the process of building relationships with those groups and how they present their bill to them.

Building a coalition of supporters for your bill is a fine art that Keri and Michelle have been mastering this semester and they share with us how they approach presenting their bill to different groups. We hope you enjoy this week’s episode of The Clinic and we look forward to sharing next week’s episode where we start to talk about the Committee process!
