Abstract: 

This explainer document is the fourth in a four part series based on Research Meets Policy at SFU 2021 - a virtual summer institute hosted by the SFU Knowledge Mobilization Hub.The media is an effective channel for reaching policy makers, as it is a proven way to gain the interest and attention of voters on a particular topic, or as another way to attract the attention of policy makers directly. When short on time, many policy makers rely on trusted voices on Twitter or other media outlets for quick takes on pressing issues. In this explainer, we share how you can get started engaging the media for communicating to policy makers.
