Thank You

Welcome!

Welcome to the Baltivist community!

Just by joining, you are showing that you care about the future of the Baltic countries. By participating, you will be making a difference.

How? Together. And through a concept called community-based advocacy. 

Community-based advocacy is the idea that a community can band together to effectively influence government. It is the concept that instead of allowing a few connected individuals to influence government, a community of activists can band together to influence the government. And it uses the same tools that most lobbyists use – information and access.

Information

First, let’s get the basics down, so take some time to visit the Issues & Bills Page. Think you already know the issues? Take the quiz at the top of that page to test your knowledge.

Next, stay up to date on the latest issues by visiting the Baltic Intelligence Feed. Here, information is gathered from a number of experts so we can always stay updated on the latest news. If you find some intelligence on the latest news that feels relevant, please share so that we can all stay updated.

For the more advanced users, there is also a unique resource available on Baltivist.com, a Power Map. This shows the playing field that not only shows the “who’s who” of Congress, but also where your members of Congress fit in to the power map.

Access

The staff at Baltivist.com have access to a number of resources to get you in a meeting with either the staff of your member of Congress or with your actual member of Congress. (Insider secret – it’s actually not difficult if you’d like us to teach you!)

But if you’d like to set up a meeting with a relevant staff member, either wait for the next Baltic Advocacy Day or contact one of us to set up a meeting. (feel free to reach to our founder at vytas@baltivist.com).

By signing up for Baltivist, we hope you don’t mind that we may be reaching out to you at some point to set up a meeting for you. Occasionally, there’s a really important meeting we want to set up and it might end up being for your member of Congress. It’s incredibly powerful to include Baltivists in these meetings, so we hope you can join us if we reach out to you!

 

So, welcome to Baltivist.com! Have fun exploring, and make sure that when you learn anything from your Baltic activism, please share with the community!
