  • Expanded the coalition to consumer groups, international groups, and other interested parties.

  • Interacted directly with key House and Senate staff as well as Members of Congress in support of the legislation.

  • Drafted and sent letters from the Coalition to prominent retailers in support of a cash payment option.

  • Conducted Congressional staff briefings.

  • Drafted and placed op-eds and statements in support of maintaining the cash payment option.

  • Maintained website and twitter accounts and other social media in support of cash-friendly policies.

  • Regular monitoring of news media, trade publications and websites, and other media to identify and circulate to Coalition members pertinent articles and reports of events or public statements supporting or opposing continued maintenance of cash as a payment option for U.S. consumers.
