You can add your voice at the State Capitol! Tell legislators what you want them to focus on when Regular Session begins in January and be ready to offer your testimony when things get rolling.
To help do that, the Legislature's Public Access Room (PAR) is offering "Your Voice," a free, one-hour workshop at several locations on Oahu.
Topics include understanding the legislative process, deadlines, and power dynamics, as well as tips on effective lobbying, testifying, and communicating with Senators and Representatives. "How-To" guides, informational handouts, and other resources will be available.
