Do You Feel Heard? ASBA’s Legislation Advocacy Trainings

| October 18, 2015

Do you feel like your legislators listen to you? Each year it seems as though more elected officials become adverse to the needs of public education, and with an ongoing lawsuit against the legislature to adequately fund schools it’s more important than ever to be heard. But to do that we need to:

  • Learn how to engage our neighbors
  • Learn how to build relationships with legislators
  • Understand how the process works
In the interest of strengthening the voice of public education backers across Arizona, we’re joining with neighborhood leaders across the state for advocacy trainings. The meetings will be free and open to the public, and will be located at:

These advocacy trainings will give you:
  • An overview of the legislative process, advocacy examples, and the tools ASBA provides
  • A run through of the “Request to Speak” system on azleg.gov and how to register to use this resource
  • Tools to amplify your voice in the community
If you would like to RSVP, or would like us to provide this training in your area, please contact Geoff Esposito. ASBA is currently working to get a trainings scheduled throughout the state.
