State Budget and Lobby Training

3 Week Training Series

If you missed our “You and Your State Budget” Training Series last fall, don’t worry! We’re offering it again in a condensed format!

The UTST 3 Week State Budget and Lobby Training Series is designed for folks who’ve never been involved in a state budget and/or lobby process but are interested in learning more. The series will begin with a discussion of the ins and outs of state government, breaking down the decision making protocols that affect all of us. The first training will be followed by topics that include how you can impact or influence the decision making process, how to engage with local political officials, and why we need to bring working class people together across partisan lines to make local government work for everyone.

A focused media training session will be offered in February.
