Mass email campaigns and one-size-fits-all grassroots efforts rarely lead to policy success. Lawmakers at any level, from the state legislatures to local county and city officials, are rarely persuaded by the same issue, opinion, or advocacy tactic. It’s imperative to go beyond simple storytelling and frame both the tactic deployed and the personal story shared according to the individual target.
