How Things Work at the Statehouse with Rachel Coyle
Saturday Sep 14, 2019 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Rachel Coyle, former Statehouse staffer, will join us for discussion on how community members can engage to advocate for legislation at the state level. You will better understand how bills are suggested to legislators, how you can become actively involved to testify for or against a bill, sit in committee, and generally stay engaged in the legislative process. The JLC will look at specific legislation supporting removal of sales tax for feminine hygiene products and disposable diapers among others which align to our mission of supporting women and children.
This event is free and open to the public.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
