The aim of this committee is to ensure that the materials AMBA produces, particularly in the advocacy and education committees, reach not only our local community members but also our leaders in the legislature by:

  • Identifying areas by which AMBA could serve as a resource to ongoing legislative and policy efforts by elected officials. 

  • Building grassroots relationships with staffers on Capitol Hill.

  • Hosting events that intersect the judicial and legislative communities.
