Theresa Davis

This is a program for minorities and women interested in governmental affairs CAREERS (You may call them "lobbyists"). This is specifically for those that do NOT want to run for office but those that want to ADVOCATE for a cause more than part time.

Disclaimer: This is NOT a government sanctioned program or in any way connected to my legislative office. This is a PRIVATE, NON-PARTISAN program.

The Who?

  • Lawyers or law students that don't want to practice law
  • Activists that don't want to run for office
  • Activists that want to lobby more than part time
  • Current elected officials who think they need a "refresher" or inquisitive

The Why?

  • Low presence of women and POC under the Gold Dome; largest black caucus; good number of women. The numbers don't add up.
  • Lots of "run for office" programs and "advocate for your issue" programs but the GAP is here----not wanting to run for office but wanting to advocate more than part time.


  • Exposure ("Day in the life of....")
  • Opportunity ("What types of opportunities for lobbying are there?)
  • Connecting (Relationships)
