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.
The workshop/presentation “Your Voice!” is about an hour in length, and covers the Legislature and how to effectively participate in the legislative process. In addition, this year the neighbor island workshops will be combined with an open “office hour” for residents who may want to drop in to ask questions, pick up materials, or delve more deeply into specific areas.
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 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, call 808/587-0478 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
