Ideas

For one week in May, United for Infrastructure is a great time to think creatively about how to talk about infrastructure – to your policymakers, to your voters and constituents, to your community. The ideas below are just a starting point.

Plan Your Own Virtual “Hill Day”

It’s no secret that this is THE year for infrastructure in Washington. As Congress and the Administration debate how to move forward on stimulus and infrastructure legislation, we need you to weigh in. Share the priorities that are important to you, your organization, your sector, or your community. Meeting with Congressional staff has never been easier. Check back soon for our Virtual Hill Day Toolkit!

Plan a Web-Event

We can’t convene in person this year, but elevating your infrastructure priorities, challenges, and solutions has never been more important. And thanks to a year of practice on remote working, learning, and meeting, it’s never been easier! This year we encourage you to join us with a virtual event. Plan a webinar or virtual roundtable on the issues most important to you, and let us help you publicize it by posting it on our event calendar.

The cost of hosting a virtual event on platforms such as Zoom, Webex, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, and more is very low – much lower than planning most in-person events. And, because geography doesn’t matter, it’s easier than ever to get the expert speakers you want to join your event – not to mention a nationwide audience.

Not sure how to get started? Let us help:

Plan a (Virtual) Infrastructure Tour

In the past you’ve held open houses or taken the press on insider tours of your project or facility. This year, open your doors to everyone with a virtual video tour that shows how you’re helping your community to rebuild and plan for the future! It doesn’t need to be fancy – just show us around and tell your story, then post it on twitter and tag it to #LeadWithInfrastructure. Reach out to use at partnerships@unitedforinfrastructure.org to let us know and we’ll be sure to highlight it.
