Small Business Owners: Make Your Voice Heard
Small business owners like you are the backbone of our nation’s economy. Our country depends on you to innovate, create jobs and support your local communities. But too often, policymakers make decisions without listening to real small business owners. In every policy conversation, small business owners deserve to have a seat at the table.
That’s the goal behind Small Business Majority’s advocacy work. We’re dedicated to ensuring that lawmakers and the media hear from real small business owners on the issues that matter most to small businesses. That’s why we want you to become an official Small Business Majority spokesperson.
What does it mean to be a small business spokesperson? For some small business owners, it might mean writing a letter to the editor. For others, it might mean testifying before Congress or state lawmakers. To help you become a small business spokesperson, we can:
- Connect you with reporters to include your voice in news stories about issues like healthcare, access to capital and more.
- Facilitate meetings with local and national lawmakers so you can share your experiences as a small business owner.
- Help you draft and place op-eds and letters to the editor on key small business issues in your local newspapers.
- Invite you to our annual Small Business Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C., so you can meet face-to-face with policymakers and small business leaders.
- Feature you on Small Business Majority’s blog or social media pages.
These are just a few examples of our small business spokesperson opportunities. If you’re interested in similar opportunities—or have other ideas about how you’d like to become a spokesperson—fill out our small business spokesperson form below.
