Christopher Kush CEO | Soapbox Consulting

Christopher Kush has built a career on the idea that finely-tuned personal interactions between legislative representatives and their constituents can push those constituents’ concerns to the forefront of their representatives’ legislative agenda. Kush and his team have worked with grassroots advocates to communicate effectively on a wide range of issues from cancer prevention and treatment (American Cancer Society), to LGBT rights (the Human Rights Campaign), to wind energy (the American Wind Energy Association). At the Public Policy Institute, Kush will coach senior living executives during an hour of advocacy training.
