"Birddogging" is asking a public official or aspiring candidate to do something you care about, in person and in public.

Even during COVID-19, there are ways we can use this successful approach for social pressure. Birddoggers apply pressure directly to a target who has the power to give us what we want, and it WORKS! Al Gore was birddogged before issuing support for cheaper AIDS drugs in Africa. John McCain was birddogged before he cast the vote that saved the ACA.

In this training, we teach you how to step up and make your legislators work for you. You will learn how to birddog for the world of 2020 and beyond.
