What the experts are saying about Changemaker:

"Thank goodness an advocate as effective as Kristina has taken the time to explain and demystify a complex and nuanced process. This insider’s guide will help progressive advocates accelerate their agendas in Sacramento. "

- Jennifer Fearing, President, Fearless Advocacy

"Understanding how to navigate the legislative process is essential for those of us working for justice in California. The process is ripe with opportunities for impacted community members to become active leaders. Kristina Bas Hamilton strikes at the core of this activism with this amazing and powerful book. Every advocate, activist, or community member involved in policy efforts and campaigns should have this book in their toolkit."

- Victor Narro, UCLA Professor, Author, and Activist

"Grassroots advocates pushing for legislative change often feel like David facing off against Goliath. For my fellow Davids, I highly recommend Changemaker by veteran labor lobbyist Kristina Bas Hamilton. An inside and practical take on how workers can win legislative campaigns, Changemaker boldly recognizes an unsavory truth: the legislative process is far too removed and intimidating for the vast majority of Californians. This means successful advocacy is elusive to those who need it the most. The book aspires to change this by demystifying the legislative process to make it more transparent and accessible. Its powerful message reinforces the idea that, at its core, the best advocacy is led by those who understand the real-life impact of policies, an insight that has the potential to transform the way we engage with our governing institutions."

- Kimberly Alvarenga, Director, California Domestic Workers Coalition

"Changemaker is the guidebook all lobbyists wish they had when first starting out. Kristina Bas Hamilton has created a unique and masterful compilation of the "do's and don'ts" of the California legislative process that will not only save advocates time and heartache but will set them up for success. Influencing public policy in the world's fifth-largest economy is a herculean task. Changemaker decodes an intricate and often overwhelming process into digestible, actionable steps, making it an invaluable resource for aspiring changemakers. Kristina has done an excellent job reminding us that legislative advocacy isn't just the purview of high-priced professionals but is a tool for everyday Californians to make positive change in their communities."

- Angie Wei, former Legislative Affairs Secretary, Office of Governor Gavin Newsom; former Chief of Staff, California Labor Federation
