Grassroots legislation in Xiaobailou Street Contact points grafted this form of activity into legislative consultation work.

For example, the grassroots legislative contact point uses "Peace Night Talk" as a carrier to cooperate with relevant departments and go deep into the doorsteps of residents to listen to opinions on the "Barrier-free Environment Construction Law of the People's Republic of China (Draft)".

  "In this process, the staff at the grassroots legislative contact point acted as a 'legal translator', translating the 'French language' into common language that ordinary people can understand, and listened to everyone's opinions on the basis of popularizing and interpreting the law. Opinions and suggestions on national legislation gather public opinion and wisdom." Guo Jiawei pointed out that in the entire work process, grassroots legislative contact points pay special attention to the "pre-interpretation and learning" link, which will make the legislative opinions solicited more accurate and in-depth.
