Does ASGA Lobby on National Issues?
Before Student Governments can efficiently and effectively lobby on issues beyond their individual campuses, they first must be effective and influential at their own institutions, with their own constituents, and with their own administrators.
ASGA’s Position on Lobbying
ASGA encourages members to focus their limited time, resources, and energy on enhancing their local Student Government organizations. ASGA wants SGs to improve their voter turnout, recruit more candidates, and focus on “winnable” issues to build their credibility and reputation.
When SGs become more effective on their own campuses, they will be far more influential in their work on broader issues and causes statewide, regionally, and/or nationally.
Search for dozens of national and regional groups that lobby on everything from financial aid to environmental issues.
