Grants:IdeaLab/Capitol Hill & Public Policy
What is the problem you're trying to solve?
Congress only listens to those who show up; how do we communicate the public policy views of the community with the political system
What is your solution?
small groups could brief staff of members of congress. building on the previous work of WikiLoves Capitol Hill
previous efforts used no money, but some travel funds and meal funds would enable more people to engage the Congress.
incorporating the work of https://policy.wikimedia.org/ would leverage the WMF efforts.
brief congress; communicate public policy concerns; listen to congress; communicate political process to community
