Our Trainer:  Jeff Willard

Training Objective

This workshop will help each participant become familiar with and develop their existing advocacy skills around social justice legislation. Each will learn to create their own advocacy strategies to interact with all types of legislators, Conservative, Progressive or Moderate.  We will practice our skills and leave with practical advice and abilities to achieve our advocacy objectives.

MTA attendees will be visiting our U.S. Representatives Wednesday, August 28th seeking their co-sponsorship of the “We the People Amendment (H. J.Res. 48).  All are welcome to joint us!
