Now What: People Power and Policy

Start: Saturday, May 05, 201810:00 AM

Now What: People Power and PolicyThis legislative session, thousands of public school teachers and supporters converged on the Capitol and demanded full participation in our policy making process and won a historic victory.

If you’re like me, you probably have questions about how to continue to participate in creating positive change for public school employees, or how the policies passed this session might impact you. You might also want to build the skills that will help you keep this people-centered momentum moving forward in your community.

We’ll be offering workshops and updates on:

  • Next Steps for Public School Employees and PEIA

  • SNAP Benefits and Safety Nets

  • State Budget: How it impacts you

  • Turning Your Idea into a Policy Solution

  • And More!

Join us as we recap the legislative session and discuss ways to bring about change in your community.

Registration begins at 9:30 am with workshops starting at 10 am. Lunch is Provided!

Special Thanks to the following organizations for hosting this workshop: WV Community Development HUB; Our Children, Our Future; American Friends Service Committee; WV Center on Budget and Policy; WV Citizens Action Group; and West Virginians for Affordable Health Care.
