Now What? People Power & Policy Workshop

This legislative session, thousands of public school employees and supporters converged on the Capitol and demanded full participation in our policy making process and won a historic victory!

Now that the legislative session is over, you probably have questions about how to continue to participate in creating positive change, or how the policies passed this session might impact you. Maybe you want to learn new skills that will help you build on this momentum to move West Virginia and your community forward.

If this sounds like you, join us for a Now What? People Power and Policy workshop near you.
