Event description

Description

Eager to become a more engaged citizen but not sure where to start? You’re not alone.

Join Courtney Emerson and Alessandra Biaggi, in partnership with Ellevate Network, for an in-person workshop on how to use your voice and your power in service of the issues you care about most.

The goals of this workshop are to:
  • Concretely define “your issues”—what matters most to you and why
  • Better understand how government works and the most effective advocacy and engagement tools and tactics to drive change on behalf of those issues
  • Develop a personalized roadmap to become a more engaged, effective citizen—for life
  • Understand how you can support political campaigns and candidates you believe in (local, state and federal)

You’ll leave the session with tangible next steps and actions to more meaningfully engage in political life at all levels. Join us!
