How to Become a Citizen Lobbyist

November 29th, 2001 by Adam

The President’s Commission on the Status of Women, the Women’s Studies Council, and the NH Women’s Lobby will present a low cost/no cost workshop on how to get involved in law making from 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Saturday, December 1 at the Hartman Union Building (room 119).

Students, faculty and community members are invited to join a fun and informative session to learn how concerned citizens can make a difference in the New Hampshire legislative process. The workshop will examine how laws are made, how to monitor bills as they move through committees, how to testify at public hearings and how to contact your elected officials.

Workshops will include the opportunity to practice advocacy skills through a mock legislative hearing in addition to presentations by current and former New Hampshire legislators, lobbyists and public policy staff from nonprofit organizations.

Students, faculty, and community members can pre-register by contacting the PSC President’s Commission at
535-2370 or by contacting the NH Women’s Policy Institute at 224-9105. Coffee, mingling, and registration begin at 8:30 a.m. Workshops are free for members of the N.H. Women’s Lobby, N.H. NOW, PSC, and USNH communities; a $5 donation is requested from non-members.
