Free Workshops on Understanding Your State Legislature

While this is not directly related to (or occurring in) downtown Phoenix, it is a great opportunity to get a handle on how things work at the Capitol. Also, what happens at the Capitol can have a direct impact on downtown’s vitality, so it is important for all residents to understand how it works.

Two free workshops on Understanding Your State Legislature will be from 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 1, at Goelet A.C. Beuf Senior Center, 3435 W. Pinnacle Peak Road (map), and from 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 8, at Devonshire Senior Center, 2802 E. Devonshire Ave (map).

The workshops, presented by the city of Phoenix Office of Government Relations, will offer an overview of the state legislative process and how to become involved in decisions made at the state legislature. Tips also will be presented on effective lobbying techniques and information on how to use technology to track legislation.

Two state lawmakers will be invited to attend the sessions to offer their advice on how to effectively communicate with legislators and how the decisions they make impact your neighborhood.

The free workshops are offered to help demystify the legislative process and encourage public involvement from neighborhood groups and residents to create public policy. Seating is limited. To register for one of the workshops, call 602-256-4257 or visit phoenix.gov/intergov/workshop.html.
