Maui residents can learn how to effectively add their voice at the State Capitol in free one-hour workshops called “Your Voice” in September.
The workshops will include tips and techniques on effective lobbying, testimony and communicating with State Senators and Representatives. Attendees will also learn how to understand the legislative process, deadlines and power dynamics at the Capitol. They’ll also be introduced to easy to use tools available on the Legislature’s website and will be given helpful handouts, guides and resources.
