Event Details

 

Politics 101 is a deep dive into the hidden mechanisms that drive politics and political decision making in the United States. The systems and procedures of power in our democracy are often obscured from the view of the very people it’s meant to serve. This workshop addresses several key topics which are ignored by political science classes, the media and even Wikipedia pages. Over the course of the workshop, we will cover: Election Law, Political Geography, Money in Politics, The Party Structure in America and how to engage in the existing system for real effect.

Taught by Benjamin Yee, Secretary of the New York County Democratic Party and Democratic State Committeeman, this workshop will give attendees an insider’s view of the American political system. You can either attend this workshop or hire a lobbyist, your choice.

**SPACE IS LIMITED**

*Doors open at 6:45 PM, workshop starts at 7:00 PM sharp – Please arrive a few minutes early to get settled and network with fellow attendees.*

This workshop is highly interactive so in addition to learning new skills and strategies, you will also have an opportunity to network with inspiring, like-minded people!
