Resources from Common Cause
Below are a few resources developed by myself and other Common Cause staff to aid our work internally as well as assist other groups we work with on an international level. Below is an overview of how Common Cause is organized, our history, the basics of how we run our campaigns, and the types of issues we work on.

Common Cause Campaign Planning and Lobbying Tools
The "Campaign Planning Questions" is a tool I use all the time to help me think through all the necessary issues in designing an effective campaign. While you might need to do some research to answer all the questions and that could take some time, by the time you work your way through them you have a pretty decent sketch of what your overall campaign will look like. The presentation on "Lobby Techniques" drills a little deeper down on how to identify individuals and organizations you want to bring to your side on an issue.
Here is a few additional training modules I've put together recently for some groups I am working with.
