Join us for this PACE webinar on Monday, May 2nd, when we’ll provide an overview of a new survey of congressional staff gauging Capitol Hill opinions on the various influences on lawmakers’ decisions, the impact of the Internet on the Congress and public policy, and how Congress views and uses social media.

The presentation will offer some surprising findings on the power of informed citizen-advocates, how Congress views mass grassroots campaigns, and raise important questions for anyone interested in the public policy process. The program will be presented by the Congressional Management Foundation (CMF), a nonpartisan non-profit organization which works to improve congressional operations through research, publications and training. This report is part of CMF’s new initiative to enhance understanding of and the realtionship between citizens and Congress, the Partnership for a More Perfect Union.

Chris Gates, the Executive Director of PACE – Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement, will moderate the webinar. Our two presenters will be Brad Fitch, President and CEO of the Congressional Management Foundation and the author of Citizen’s Handbook to Influencing Elected Officials, and Tim Hysom, Director of the Partnership for a More Perfect Union initiative at the CMF.

PACE-Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement is an affinity group of the Council on Foundations and serves as a learning collaborative for funders doing work in the fields of democratic practice and civic engagement. For more information about PACE, go to
