Each and every step of the way, your campaign should be guided by the answers to these Three Key Questions:
- WHAT DO YOU WANT? What is the policy change you are seeking to address body confidence?
- WHY DO YOU WANT IT? What data make a case for that policy change?
- WHO HAS THE POWER TO GIVE IT TO YOU? Which specific decision-makers in state or local government have the power to make that change?
Once we have those answers, it is time to come up with strategies to influence those key decision-makers. So, let’s get to it! Use this worksheet (PDF) to answer the Three Key Questions for your campaign.
