Thomas F. Sheridan - Helping the Good Do Better: How a White Hat Lobbyist Advocates for Social Change — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Monday, September 9, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

A social worker by training, after thirty years of advocating for public interest causes Sheridan is known as our leading “white hat” lobbyist. His book draws from his extensive experience with defining social issues such as AIDS, global poverty, cancer, human trafficking, national service, early childhood education, and social entrepreneurship to present chapter-length case studies, each showing in detail how coalitions are built, strategies crafted, and powerful interests challenged in high-stakes, no-holds-barred political battles; together, this remarkable record of real legislative achievement—Sheridan was instrumental in passing the Ryan White Act and championed the Americans with Disabilities Act—constitutes a new theory for social change.
