February 11

Audience: Alumni,  Current Student,  Faculty,  Neighbor or Friend,  Prospective Student,  Staff

Civic engagement is a fundamental aspect of a participatory democracy. Research suggests that the motivation and execution of such action comes from civic education - actually knowing how to engage and do so effectively. With the election and inauguration in the rearview mirror, it’s critical that social workers stay engaged in the political process and work towards justice for all.

In this interactive workshop, participants will receive an up-to-date briefing on state and federal policy, and trainings on legislative advocacy and grassroots community organizing. With an opportunity to join breakout sessions based on individual areas of interest, participants will leave with the knowledge and training they need to invest their efforts for maximum impact.

Presenters include:
Jennifer Greenfield, Associate Professor
Hope Errico Wisneski, Chief of Staff and Associate Dean for Operations
Raul Medina, Colorado Peoples Alliance

Free and open to all.
