Workshop 1: How the hell does local government work?
Led by Shaniqua McClendon, Political Strategist, Crooked Media
Many of us have don't have a clear understanding of how local government decisions affect what goes on in our communities. How important are city council members? What does the Mayor do? Exactly how and when are decisions made? A crash course in local gov and how to engage with them to get what we need.
Workshop 2: Voting is just one way to create change.
Led by Betsy Aimee, Marketing and Communications Expert, Born in June Creative
Voting is important and one pathway to change, but what else can we do? Connect with the skills and resources you have to start or support social change initiatives happening locally. We all have something to offer. Featuring a special breakout group activity where we get to put our new knowledge to the test to approach and solve a community issue.
