A rising number of people are looking for ways to engage in our democracy and become more involved in their communities. Our goal with this event is to inform the public about civic engagement and foster a sense of community and responsibility towards both our neighbors and our country.
This community engagement workshop draws on best practices for non-partisan civic education. The group and table leaders will introduce the attendees to the most accessible, affordable, and impactful techniques they can use to make sure their elected representatives hear and respond to their concerns.
We are very excited to announce our table leaders, who are all local community leaders:
- Nancy Hirstein Smith, Sunnyvale City Councilmember (current) (Sunnyvale)
- Kalimah Salahuddin, Board Trustee for the Jeffferson Union High School District (Pacifica)
- Tara Martin-Milius, Sunnyvale City Councilmember (former) (Sunnyvale)
- Emily Ann Ramos, Mountain View City Council Campaign Manager (Mountain View)
- Michelle Maa, Public School Teacher, Downtown College Prep, Alum Rock (San Jose)
- Jeffrey Cardenas, former co-campaign manager, Marc Berman AD-24, former staffer in the CA state Senate and Police Aide at Santa Clara County Supervisors
Please RSVP as space is limited.
