What role does listening play in convincing legislators to take action? This episode featured talks on strategies for appealing to legislative audiences. Maiya Zwerling has spent more than 10 years coaching expert and community witnesses to effectively testify before federal and state legislatures in pursuit of policy change. She draws from recent experiences on campaigns advocating to end racialized wealth extraction in the juvenile and criminal legal system to teach advocates how to get prepared — and to prepare their clients — to testify before state legislatures.

This webinar was co-presented by Berkeley Law’s Executive Education and Clinical programs.
