Event description

Description

Our civic engagement in the legislative process is more critical than ever. Organizations in the areas of social justice, education and the arts are increasingly aware of the need to influence legislative action that will sustain their goals -- and are reaching out for citizen support. To be effective philanthropic stewards we need to understand the power of advocacy when promoting the causes we passionately support. Enhancing our understanding of the State's legislative process makes us all more influential participants in the shaping of public policy.
