Public policy advocates Gina Da Silva from the California Immigrant Policy Center and Araceli Martínez-Olguín from Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto will facilitate a dynamic and interactive training on how to be an effective activist for immigrant rights (and many other civil liberties causes). You'll learn how to identify and target the policymaker relevant to your issue, prepare your advocacy team, formulate talking points, and coordinate a visit with that policymaker.
Join in for this practical training. Learn how to take meaningful action advocating for issues that impact your community. During these challenging times, take this opportunity to unite with your neighbors. The chapter will also hold an election on its slate of board member candidates, and provide an update on the chapter's work in the county.
The event is free, open to the public, and wheelchair accessible. Click on this link to RSVP.
