We the Powerful!
Discover the Public's Power in the Legislative Process

Pick up tips and tools to help you add your voice to Hawaii's lawmaking process at the Public Access Room (PAR)'s free workshop, offered at several locations on Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island this October.

Topics covered by the workshop include:

  • Tips and techniques on effective lobbying, testimony, and communicating with Senators and Representatives
  • Understanding the legislative process, deadlines, and power dynamics
  • Easy to use tools available on the Legislature’s website
  • Helpful handouts, guides, and resources

The 90-minute workshop ends with time for focus and collaboration on matters of interest to the participants. The flexible nature of the workshop provides a useful start for newcomers, as well as new information and inspiration for veterans of the legislative process.

While participants are encouraged to register for the free workshops, drop-ins are always welcome. To register, get additional information, or to schedule additional or advanced workshops during these annual visits, call 808/587-0478  or email
