NRA launches America's Restaurant Advocates initiative


A new National Restaurant Association initiative aims to strengthen the restaurant industry's grassroots power.

The program, America's Restaurants Advocates, will help build a coalition of politically active restaurateurs. Launched Wednesday at the National Restaurant Association Public Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C, America's Restaurant Advocates also serves as information hub for politically active restaurateurs.

Through an interactive website, America's Restaurants Advocates will educate and engage operators on key issues that affect the industry. The website also will allow restaurateurs to share stories about how those issues affect their businesses.

The site features an action center, advocacy toolkit, issue briefs and more. The online toolkit will help operators leverage their relationships with Congress, as well as network with their politically active peers.

By becoming one of America's Restaurant Advocates, restaurateurs can help advance the industry's priorities at city, the state house and on Capitol Hill. The advocates contact policy-makers, communicate their concerns and explain the industry's economic impact in their communities.
