elevator speech

Finding a cause you're passionate about isn't the problem - figuring out how to get your message across and how to enact change: that's the problem.

The solution is the League of Women Voters annual Citizens in Action Workshop.

This year, local environmental activist John Doberstein is one of the speakers and he previews a secret weapon in the arsenal of anyone who's trying to get the ear of someone else: the perfectly crafted elevator speech.
