How to Talk So Your Legislators Will Listen

Saturday, October 19, 2019

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Join us for the next event in this fall's Civics & Democracy Series.

Learn the most effective ways to reach your state legislators and make your voice heard on issues that are important to you in this non-partisan presentation by Nancy Brumback.  Learn at what point in the legislation process is communication from constituents the most effective.  Discover why it is important to contact legislators even when you know they agree with you.

About the speaker:
Nancy Brumback is currently Co-Chair for Program and Action, and she chairs the Legislative Action Committee, overseeing LWVMA’s activity at the State House. Nancy represents LWVMA on coalitions to combat voter suppression and reform election laws with such organizations as Common Cause, ACLU and MassVOTE.

Co-sponsored by the Amherst League of Women Voters.

This Civics & Democracy Series is made possible due to support from the Friends of the Jones Libraries and the Woodbury Fund.
