"We the Powerful!" heads to Kauai

The Legislature's Public Access Room (PAR) has scheduled a series of FREE workshops next week on Kauai. The workshops are part of PAR's popular "We the Powerful!" presentations to communities across the state prior to the start of the legislative session. They are designed to demystify the State lawmaking process and to demonstrate ways that people can speak out at the legislature without having to travel to the State Capitol.

Here's what you will learn:

*Overview of the people at the Capitol, what they do, and how and when the lawmaking takes place

*Easy ways to add your voice and ideas to the legislative process

*Handy tips for finding the information you need

*Assistance in writing and delivering effective testimony, either at the Capitol or from your home island.

Here's the schedule for Kauai:

Wednesday, November 10, 6:00 p.m., Koloa Library Conference Room

Monday, November 15, 6:00 p.m., Lihue Neighborhood Center, 3353 Eono Street

Tuesday, November 16, 6:00 p.m., Hanapepe Library Conference Room

Wednesday, November 17, 6:00 p.m., Princeville Library

Thursday, November 18, 6:00 p.m., Kapaa Library Conference Room

For further information, Kauai residents may call toll free at 274-3141, ext.7-0478 or email

Contact PAR to make arrangements if special assistance or services such as sign language interpreters are needed.
