Several “How-To” workshops will be held on Maui to educate the public on effective lobbying at the legislature.  The public will learn more about how laws are created and what citizens can do to have a say in the process.

This year, the Public Access Room is offering two new workshops at several different locations on Maui. One is geared towards newcomers and provides an introduction to the legislative process to get new participants ready for the session. The second workshop is for those who already have an understanding of how laws are made and will focus on advanced advocacy tips on effective lobbying.

“How-To” guides, informational handouts, and other resources will be available. Workshop times include:
