Session One: Cultivating Relationships

Defender offices that must appeal to local or state legislatures for increased budgets could benefit greatly from allies who will advocate for their cause. With whom should you start cultivating relationships to develop allies? When? What are some strategies to open the door to these relationships? This session will talk about cultivating relationships with likely and unlikely allies, both within and outside of the criminal justice system, in support of defender offices' budget initiatives.
