Grassroots Advocacy: Engaging with the Legislative Process
The legislative process is meant to facilitate public conversations about issues. But it’s pretty confusing. This workshop will offer key strategies and present creative case studies to help you take your organization’s direct advocacy and grassroots efforts to the next level. Explore state and local-level political shifts and legislative trends, and tools to help you follow the action.
Kelly will present at CRHC’s Forum conference on Friday, April 10th from 8:00-9:45 and again from 10:00-11:45. The Forum conference is held April 8-10th at the Denver Sheraton West in Lakewood. To register for The Forum, visit https://coruralhealth.org/theforum.
