We have heard from more people than ever before who want to be involved in the Utah State Legislative session, advocating for important civil liberties issues with the ACLU of Utah.
We've also heard from many folks who aren't comfortable using Utah's very comprehensive - and very transparent - legislative website. You asked for help, and we want to give it to you!
Come to the ACLU of Utah office(355 North 300 West) on Wednesday, January 25, from 6:30 p.m to 7:30 p.m., for a workshop on how to use the le.Utah.gov website to support your community lobbying efforts. You will learn how to read the many helpful calendars (weekly and monthly) on the website, where to find live streaming audio of committee hearings (if you can't get away from work!), how to contact your representatives (or even find out WHO represents you), how to translate the "reading calendars" for the House and Senate (and watch live video of the proceedings!), and much more.
SPACE IS LIMITED. Please contact Anna Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your spot.
We encourage you to bring your laptop, if you have one - but we will also project the site on the big screen for everyone to follow along. You can take notes to keep next to your desktop computer at home!
