Legislative Advocacy Toolkit

There are countless ways to create positive change during the South Dakota legislative session. One tried and true way is contacting your elected officials.

We have assembled a toolkit to guide your advocacy efforts.

Our Legislative Advocacy Toolkit illustrates how to effectively talk with your legislators about issues that are important to you. If you’re looking for additional ways to get involved with our work defending freedom on the great plains this session, sign up to receive email updates and action alerts and sign up to volunteer with us! We’ll be in touch when the time comes with information on how you can take action to protect our rights and liberties in South Dakota.
