Government 101 a success!

Nearly 100 local residents joined me at City Hall this morning for a Government 101 workshop. Attendees learned how to access city resources and become effective advocates for their communities by observing a City Council meeting and attending seminars on how residents can influence the city’s legislative process.

I started Government 101 to connect people with city resources, because I meet people every day who want to help their communities and want to learn more about how they can do so effectively. Through the program, we’ve helped over 1,000 people learn how to partner with government, businesses, and local organizations to bring real change to their neighborhoods. If you missed the workshop, be sure to sign up for the next Government 101!
