NARSOL – Advocacy Tool Kit on June 19

NARSOL‘s educational and inspiring webcast will be this Saturday, June 19th, from 8:00 AM until 3:00 PM Pacific Standard Time (PST). Be sure to sign up today and take advantage of this opportunity to learn about building your advocacy toolkit from experienced civil rights advocates. Then hear from two seasoned state legislators who will help us better understand the lawmaking process and which lobbying strategies work best to get our message heard.

It is easy to join the webcast. Instructions will be provided before the start time and people will be standing by, ready to assist anyone experiencing problems. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
