Government officials, electeds and others, need to hear from the people they serve. A functioning democracy requires an active citizenry.
ASNV will host an advocacy training workshop on Saturday, March 18, 2017, in the afternoon at Green Springs Gardens, Annandale/Alexandria (route 236) and offer sessions on topics like how to craft a message to an elected official, how to build an effective relationship with an elected official and what level of government does what. In addition to ASNV, sponsoring organizations so far are the Sierra Club/Mount Vernon Group, Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment, Prince William Conservation Alliance and Audubon Naturalist Society. We’ll post more details soon. If you’d like to help, contact Glenda Booth.
