How to Create Change (Part 2): Beginning Your Advocacy Journey
Thursday, December 17, 2020 from 7:00-8:00pm
Presenter: Erinn Camp Mansour, Legislative Aide to State Senator Clarence Lam and Mt Hebron PTSA First Vice President
At the PTSA’s first How to Create Change session, we introduced some general background and information about the state legislative process, effective advocacy techniques, and using the Maryland General Assembly website to conduct research and monitor legislation. Our upcoming session will include additional information about changes to the General Assembly’s normal operating procedures for the 2021 session resulting from the ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency and how to get started on your advocacy project. We will include examples from our pilot Youth Mental Health Advocacy Team, which you are welcome to join by attending this session! After Erinn’s presentation there will be up to 30 minutes for Q&A.
