In this training, we’ll walk through: 1) how to plan an event that’s media-friendly; 2) how to invite media there; and 3) how to maintain good long-term relationships with reporters.
Partnership with Lawyers for Good Government (L4GG)
Donald Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch to fill the vacant seat on the United States Supreme Court. Judge Gorsuch does not belong on the Supreme Court—and not just because Republicans stole this seat by refusing to hold a hearing (let alone a vote!) for Merrick Garland, President Obama’s supremely well qualified and moderate nominee. Judge Gorsuch is a staunch conservative out of step with the American people.
