If the past several months have left you feeling powerless, we’ve got a good opportunity to share. The James Beard House is offering a webinar that will help you learn how to interact more with your elected officials.
Since 2012, JBF's Chefs Boot Camp for Policy and Change has inspired and trained chefs around the country to mobilize in support of policy decisions that impact our food system. Hundreds of chef-advocates have successfully lobbied to provide nutritious school meals, protect SNAP recipients, support American fisheries, reduce food waste, and fight for safer, more regenerative food production across the United States. Talking to a Member of Congress or a congressional staffer is a new skill for many chefs and other culinary professionals, and can be intimidating. In this webinar, we'll take some of the guesswork out of the process. Webinar attendees will learn best practices when it come to advocacy and interacting with Members of Congress and Hill staff, and will leave with a better understanding what is happening in DC right now with regard to issues of importance to the restaurant community.
Featuring: Robert Murray, Legislative Director, Office of Senator Roger Wicker; Patti Ross, Senior Policy Advisor, Office of the Speaker Nancy Pelosi; Moderated by Tiffany Derry, chef and restaurateur, Tiffany Derry Concepts and Roots Chicken Shak.
